WIERD Presents a Very Rare performance by DREAM AFFAIR!

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Tonite WIERD is proud to host the official record release party for Dream Affair's debut full-length album Endless Days out now on Avant! Records in Italy! Abby, Hayden and Frankie's trax are one of NYC's truest embodiments of the classic guitar driven coldwave sound, in the case of the new album definitely of the high-end-heavy Germanic variety in which echo-laden swathes of sparkling guitar drift atop and play off of a prickly, spitting, bitchy young ice pick of a drum machine below. The band will be performing the entire new album live from start to finish this evening at midnite, and to make the event even wierder none other than M. Canterel himself will be making a Very Rare guest appearance going head to head with our wildest young debutante of the nasty black night Ms. Pre-Op Trans!...needless to say watching Pre-Op deal with Martial law in the BJ booth should be a site for sore eyes...(and eye.e. I don't mean the 'i' on your face gurl)...Rumors say shes goin all the way tonite...or is s/he...or did she already mmm hmm?! :O A few DA trax are up for download at Brooklyn Vegan along with the band's debut video for the album's title track.

Xeno & Oaklander's forthcoming new album Sets & Lights is now set for release on October 11th(Oct. 17th in the UK). The album's second single for the title track will be out digitally and as a 7" single with an exclusive B-side entitled "Sunday" on Sept. 20th. The first single off of Sets & Lights "The Staircase"(b/w "Not Afraid") came out in June, the video premiered via the NYTimes and the A and B sides are still available from FACT and The Quietus respectively. Its all here for your late afternoon Xanten-traversing pleasure.:

The Kindest Lines 23 city US tour starts with a kick off show Friday night in New Orleans!

I realize the words from the WIERD have been a bit unVR of late, but be assured they'll be back in full force next week...apologies, the hurricane of fuzzy green pleasure that is the US Open is underway and I'm more than distracted...stay tuned and they will VReturn next week, I assure you.

Martial Canterel, Pre-Op Trans, and Frankie Teardrop Spin the WIERD World!
