Blonde Redhead at FFF Fest 2011 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Blonde Redhead

Blonde Redhead have been quiet for most of 2012 (perhaps spent writing songs for their next album) but will play NYC on New Year's Eve at Irving Plaza with openers Beach Fossils (whose new album features vocals from BR's Kazu Makino). Tickets are still available but if you'd like to go for free, we're giving away a pair of tickets. Details on how to enter are below.

For a glimpse at what Blonde Redhead did do this year, the band gave us a Top 10 of 2012 list that includes, travel, food, parties, memories, live shows... and albums too (Dirty Projectors made their favorite). Check out their list below.

"Live Show Attended: The Sun Ra Arkestra June 7th at Nublu"

Uh, Sun Ra is FUCKING DEAD.

As 8:42 stated, pretentious rectums.

I used to love this band in 1996. Perhaps they should splinter into some new groups?
