Speedy Ortiz @ Mercury Lounge - 11/2/14 (via Marc Viloria)
The killer double bill that is the Speedy Ortiz / Ex Hex tour rolled through NYC over the weekend hitting Glasslands on Saturday (11/1) with Aye Nako and Mercury Lounge on Sunday (11/2) with Big Ups. Speedy headlined the first night and they switched it up on night 2. Did you catch either one? How were they?
The tour wraps up in Durham, NC on Friday (11/7) and after that, Speedy will return to NYC to play one of the final Death by Audio shows on November 11 with Hunters, Palehound and Bong Wish (ex-Fat Creeps). That's a pretty solid lineup, and $10 at the door gets you in. Updated dates are listed below.
Meanwhile, Speedy singer Sadie Dupuis is one of the artists contributing to the new Keep In Touch (KIT) 7" subscription series which also includes Cloud Nothings (who just announced a Chicago show), Mutual Benefit, Big Ups, Into It. Over It., Girlpool, TOPS, The So So Glos, Ava Luna, Ricky Eat Acid, Playlounge, "and a few surprises." It's a year-long subscription and the idea is "each month you'll receive a 7" x 7" postcard with a record pressed directly into a full color image curated by that month's artist." You can subscribe here.
