Momenama! Menomenoma! Meme! Oma!
Menomena [WeB5iT3!!11! / myspace] is returning opening up for none other than the Long Winters at Bowery on September 29th [and after a set by Milkwaukke’s Best, MILF]. I’ve only really seen Manemone once, two years ago at Sin-e when I didn’t really know who they were or even how to pronounce their name [Minnow Me Nuh?.... Meh? NO! MeH NAAAA? gwahh HAHAH!] I caught their last song at Sasquatch 2005 and those three minutes made me a fan. They released a greatly underappreciated experimental album last year called Under an Hour. If we’re lucky they’ll play one of the three songs off it. It has me highly anticipating their next release which I just learned that they have recently been signed to Barsuk [hence the triple Barsuk bill]. Congrats to both!
They haven’t been in these parts in ages, so don’t miss out.
Tickets are on sale now [this is all assuming "Menomona" is the same band].
Menomena – E is Stable (mp3) off I am the Fun Blame Monster!
Menomena - Water [rapidshare b/c it's 28 MB] off Under an Hour
I have the MILF album sitting on my desk, so I’ll have to give it a few spins and share my impressions later. [thx kathryn for the heads up]
