Census at 285 Kent (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
The previously discussed Shiner show with Errortype:11, that was set to happen at Irving Plaza, has been moved to the Gramercy Theater (8/11). Tickets for the show are still available or you can roll the dice and try to win a pair, AND with a vinyl copy of the recently reissued Shiner LP The Egg! Details on how to enter are below.
The lineup for the Gramercy Theater show has since been expanded, and now includes Brooklyn's Census. Census wade in the waters spilled by shoegazey 4AD forefathers and the pre-shaven head Billy Corgan on recent demo tracks. The band, which shares a member but not an aesthetic with Cults, has spent a few nights supporting names like The Growlers and The Young in the recent past. Stream their demo below and download your copy at Bandcamp.
Contest details and that Census stream are below.
Art for Shiner's The Egg
Shiner was a band from Kansas City, Missouri that was active from 1992 to 2003. The group formed in 1992, and quickly found wide exposure, releasing a vinyl EP in 1993 and touring with acts such as Sunny Day Real Estate, Chore, Jawbox, Season to Risk, The Jesus Lizard, and Girls Against Boys. The group released their first LP, Splay (recorded at Steve Albini's Chicago studio) in 1996, and a second album, Lula Divinia the next year. Sub Pop took notice, and released a 7" single of the group's songs "Sleep it Off" and "Half Empty". Following this the band toured with Hum in 1998. A third full-length, Starless, was released on a label run by members of The Descendents, Owned and Operated, in 2000. A fourth LP, The Egg, would follow before the group broke up in 2002.Shiner called it quits with a show in their native Kansas City in January of 2003, with its members taking to projects like Every Time I Die, The Damned Things, The Life & Times, With Knives, and many others.
Close to ten years later, the band is back for a quintet of reunion shows in the US in celebrate of The Egg's reissue, due on August 7th. The dates include stops in Lawrence, Kansas, Chicago, LA and NYC at Irving Plaza on August 11th with Errortype:11. Tickets are on sale.
