Waxahatchee at Bowery Ballroom in September (more by Amanda Hatfield)
You may have heard that Pitchfork is now starting a print magazine, The Pitchfork Review, and to celebrate the first issue, they're throwing a launch party in Brooklyn on December 14 at Converse Rubber Tracks. The party includes performances by two bands who had breakthrough years (and both got Pitchfork Best New Music), Waxahatchee and Mutual Benefit, in addition to Pitchfork DJs and a panel moderated by Michael Azerrad (who wrote Our Band Could Be Your Life: Scenes from the American Indie Underground 1981-1991, Come As You Are: The Story of Nirvana, and is now involved with The Talkhouse). You have to RSVP with your first and last name to firstname.lastname@example.org, though RSVP does not guarantee entry. More info and show flyer below.
Both Waxahatchee and Mutual Benefit also have upcoming tours scheduled for early 2014 which hit NYC. Waxahatchee plays Mercury Lounge (1/21) (tix) and Glasslands (1/23) (tix) with All Dogs and Cayetana; and Mutual Benefit plays Mercury Lounge (2/7) and Rough Trade (2/8) (tix).
