Live Music: Iceage, Female, Medication, The Men- June 23, 2011 (New Haven, CT)

Thursday June 23, 2011 7PM $7 All Ages

Perhaps you’ve caught wind of the buzz surrounding Iceage, a young rock and roll group out of Denmark.  Perhaps you read the review I did of it here.  Perhaps you’re well aware of this band and have already made your mind up.  And you’re probably right, they are great.  I was very excited to be able to host them on a show here in CT (one of not very many stateside shows – I think there’s going to be 6 total for this tour).  If you haven’t yet made up your mind on Iceage you can check out the New Brigade LP on Dais (now on it’s 2nd pressing).  We have some at the shop (1st press went fast so be quick about it).  If you need a fix right now, then check this video:

Female is a local progenitor of the minimal wave sound. It’s quite good (and yes, Female is a moniker). Female has been very prolific and very under-the-radar. They’ve got many albums worth of material (66 tracks) available for free at the Free Music Archive.  Dig around on that for a while.  It should keep you busy for a minute. 
Medication and The Men have rounded out the bill.  Coincidentally enough they both have recently released LPs on Sacred Bones Records.  I swear it’s a coincidence.  Good label.  You should check out their wares (uhh, we sell them).
Should be fun!
