Vinyl Updates for 3/19/2009

Posted in Apollo, Hip Hop, Lafcadio, Lake Inferior, list, music, UNC, Vinyl by Matt on March 19, 2009

Vinyl Records’ frontline artists are all making sweet, sweet music this weekend, and here’s what you need to know:

  • Tonight, Lake Inferior is headlining a show at Local 506 that also features I Was Totally Destroying It, as well as Pink Flag. Put on by Relay for Life, the night is their Cancer Sucks Benefit Show. This week’s Independent said our boys in LI, “cap the show with glowing indie pop that elicits thoughts of Brian Eno’s pop production. Stark but warm, dynamic but restrained, Lake Inferior is already a fully functional unit, but still radiates the promise of even better things to come.” HOT DANG!
  • On Saturday, 3/21, Apollo, Lafcadio, and Lake Inferior will ALL be playing at Duke Coffeehouse for the yearly throwdown we all know as the Duke/UNC Battle of the Bands. UNC’s the Nothing Noise took the title home last time this was held, and I’ve got my money on another UNC group wiping the floor with the Duke groups at this one. The show starts at six, and the acts are as follows
    UNC bands:
    – The Huguenots
    – Lake Inferior
    – The Nomad Kings
    – D.LIV(E)
    – Apollo
    – Lafcadio

    Duke bands:
    – Cool Ethan
    – Panda Force
    – Soulless Dogs
    – David Eisenband
    – Tauri Wind
    – Hopus

    Without knowing anything about any of the Duke groups, I’m going to go ahead and say Cool Ethan is a Jason Schwartzman cover band (with an amazing name). Panda Force is probably lo-fi synth rock. Soulless Dogs sounds like a Tom Waits album name, so I’m going with a cross between Waits and Nick Cave. David Eisenband…Dave Matthews meets German leider. Tauri Wind: jam band? Hopus should probably be death metal that draws heavily from Native American musical signifiers. 

Good to be back! Go Heels!
