The Wrens @ Bowery Ballroom, NYC 3/13/09
Beloved online music radio station KEXP.org took over Bowery Friday night to celebrate one year of co-broadcasting terrestrially at 91.5FM and raise some funds, and you know, respect for the momentousness of that occasion and all, but for most that snapped up tickets to the sold-out show, the evening had a different celebratory center of gravity: The Wrens are back, with the express purpose of banging out new songs with their old battered instruments, and by the count of these photos by Dese’Rae L. Stage, they are looking fucking great doing it. There’s a new album happening. Here’s part of why this is so exciting to us. As it stands you have a few options to check in with the Wrens circa ’09: via text, via MP3, or via flying down to Austin and catching any of these three shows:
03/19 @ Radio Room at 3PM (Agency Group/Brooklyn Vegan day party)
03/20 @ Prague at 1AM (i.e. THURSDAY NIGHT)(AbKosh showcase)
03/20 @ Mohawk at 12PM (Hot Freaks day party)
If NYC is a little closer for you, they’ve also lined up a show with Amazing Baby at the Bell House on 4/10. Buy all the tickets.
