Nightlight Show 3.8.12

We’re playing our first show in six months (!) on Thursday, March 8th at Nightlight in Chapel Hill. Our set will mostly be comprised new music we’ve been working on. The new material is subdued, deliberate and controlled, focused on feel and repetition.

We’re playing with Me You Us Them from Brooklyn and Grass is Green from Boston.  Both are good indie/post-punk bands headed south, for lack of a better quick descriptor. More information will be available at the Nightlight website. Hope you can make it to check out what we’re up to.
