Pop. 1280 at Public Assembly (more by Tamara Porras)
NYC's Pop. 1280 successfully married post-punk, screeching synth discharges and noise on their current EP The Grid, out now via Sacred Bones. The band will follow-up that EP with the new Thirteen Steps 7" for Blind Prophet Records (run by Sean of Cult of Youth), currently available for preorder with some streaming samples.
Pop. 1280 are scheduled to play TONIGHT at Cake Shop (9/14), supporting K-Holes and Grave Babies who are on tour.
If you miss them, then make sure and swing by their next tour-ending show at Shea Stadium on 10/29 when they play with Sex Church, The Men, Unholy Two, and Dead Farmers.
The Men are also scheduled to play Saint Vitus on 9/17 with Pygmy Shrews and Vaz.
