It was barely summer when we first announced that The New Pornographers were coming to Nashville in support of their incredible new album Brill Bruisers, and now their date at Cannery Ballroom is almost upon us now! On November 4th, you can catch the Pornos along with indie popsters Pains Of Being Pure At Heart for one of our most anticipated shows of the fall. While it’s not too late to buy tickets, we wanted to give one lucky fan a chance to win a pair, so read out for more about the show and for details on how to enter!
THE NEW PORNOGRAPHERS
Formed in the late ’90s in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, The New Pornographers have been a spring board for a number of influential indie musicians. AC Newman is often cited as the ringleader of the Pornos, but the influence of Neko Case and Dan Behjar of Destroyer just to name a few is not to be overlooked. The New Pornos burst back on the scene this summer with the announcement of their 6th full length record (and first in four years), Brill Bruisers, and the hype machine has been chasing them around in the months following the release. While we haven’t compiled our year end lists yet, we’re pretty certain the new record will end up on our list and dozens of others across the blogosphere. We’re looking forward to hearing the new jams live (just like the folks over at Conan did last week), and reliving the past in some all out sing alongs at Cannery Ballroom!
THE PAINS OF BEING PURE AT HEART
The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart have been firmly planted on our radar since the release of their self titled 2009 debut, but, in hearing the new tracks from their third release, Days Of Abandon, during their last run through Nashville in March, the band has a more polished and powerful sound. It’s not surprising to see them on tour with The New Pornos, and it’s definitely a reason to dust your dancing shoes off early on November 4th.
