The Radio Dept. Visit East Village Radio Tonight, Play Two NYC Shows This Week
In a satisfying pairing, the Radio Dept. will visit an actual radio station tonight, appearing on East Village Radio's Guilty Pleasure show at 8 pm. They'll talk about their current tour, upcoming releases and debut some new tracks. You can listen here. The Swedish shoegazers will play two sold-out local shows later this week, first at the Knitting Factory on Nov. 30, and then Bowery Ballroom on Dec. 1.
Speaking of local radio stations, Washington Square News (my first reporting gig!) has a reminder in today's paper that WNYU (my first DJing gig!) exists.
Anyhow, here's my favorite Radio Dept. song, which happens to be track seven in a singles compilation that the band will be releasing on Jan. 25.
