Mi Ami – MP3, Quarterstick LP, 2009 tour dates (NYC tonight)

Mi Ami

“On a series of engaging 12″ singles and a fascinating debut LP (“Watersports,” released last month), Mi Ami stretches out and languishes in punk-dub, sideways-jazz and African accents. On stage, however, Long (bass) and Martin-McCormick (guitar, vocals) stuck to more direct strategy: attack. That mostly meant McCormick riding Long’s gut-punch Rickenbacker bass riffs and Palermo’s kinetic drum patterns like a banshee, spraying the songs with convulsive echo-guitar riffs.”
[Washington Post on Mi Ami’s 3/10 show]

The San Francisco three-piece (ex-Black Eyes) are playing with Mirror Mirror and local goth-rock quintet Extra Life (who just returned from a month-long US tour) at the Silent Barn in NYC tonight (3/12). Mi Ami then heads to SXSW for several parties (see below) and the Touch and Go/Quarterstick SXSW Showcase on Friday, March 20th at Flamingo Cantina, before a series of April/May dates in Europe.

The recently pared down Touch and Go released the band’s Watersports LP (art below) on February 17th. All tour dates below….
