The year is wrapping up and it’s time to celebrate: Stereogum had its fifth birthday this month, our sister site Videogum took its first steps earlier this year, and we’ve all been casting votes for the third annual Gummy Awards. We think all that deserves a party. You should join us.
Mark your calendars for Monday, 12/8 and come to the Music Hall Of Williamsburg to celebrate. Technically, this is a Gummy Awards Live event, but we won’t be wasting time on stage announcing poll winners. Instead we’ve lined up a couple of great bands and some comedy from Videogum. On tap: 2008 artist to watch Bell; the lush, classy ’60s-on-Lilys-on-New Romantic New York City pop group Violens; and headliner and album-of-the-year contenders Deerhunter. Bradford and band won’t be in NYC again for awhile, so it might be good to catch ‘em while you can.
