The space and lowercase hater band IAMDYNAMITE will be releasing their debut LP called SUPERMEGAFANTASTIC in June.
I tried seeing these guys earlier this year at the 7th Street Entry, but it didn't work out. That's fine, their upcoming appearance at the Varsity Theater should be better because it is one the best venues in all of Minneapolis. Believe me; I've been to them all.
Expect the guitar/drum duo to play hits off their album, SUPERMEGAFANTASTIC, when you see them on tour:
July 26 - The Varsity - Minneapolis, MN
July 28 - Wicker Park Festival - Chicago, IL
Aug 3 - Knitting Factory - Boise, ID
Aug 4 - El Corazon - Seattle, WA
Aug 5 - Hawthorne Theater - Portland, OR
Aug 8 - Hotel Cafe - LA, CA
Aug 16 - The Black Sheep - Colorado Springs, CO
Aug 17 - The Marquee - Denver, CO
Aug 18 - Motors & Music Experience - Detroit, MI
Sept 14 - DIY Street Fair - Ferndale, MI
I AM HARLEQUIN
German-born, London-based Anne Freier, otherwise known as I Am Harlequin, released her EP, Craze, over the Independence holiday (July 2nd). Digital copies are available all over, but a hand-packaged CD can be ordered exclusively through her website.
Listen to her title song:
Don't really know much about iamYURY, based on their email. They seem to like folksy Meiko, even though they mentioned that Yury is a rapper/mixer/producer/beats maker from Pittsburgh.
Yury tries and bring the tried-and-true mixtape experience to his live gigs and recently his work on "Landing on Stars" and was the #2 most downloaded MP3 on Amazon.
