Save The Date: Let's Independent! w/ The Minor Canon, Amnion, & Princeton

So, our next Let's Independent! event at Boardner's returns on Tuesday, March 18th with the "insert your own adjective regarding awe" line-up of The Minor Canon, Amnion, and Princeton. It's FREE once again and it looks like there will even be Dewars drink specials this time, to boot.

You've got three weeks from yesterday to bone up on all three acts, if you haven't heard them already -- and, hell, you should. Here's a bit on each...

No joke. The Minor Canon's No Good Deed Goes Unpunished was one of my favorite albums last year. Duke from You Set The Scene shares that opinion and describes them succinctly by saying they "make heartfelt pop music complemented by horns and piano."

Amnion's Aaron Embry was a studio musician for the likes of Elliott Smith and Jane’s Addiction before starting up the band, which released their first album last week. Octavius from KXLU Demo Listen turned me on to them and I have to thank him for it. It's trippy pop music where The Beatles, Rufus Wainwright, and a bunch of stuff you never heard of before that you ought to have are all combined with their own thing in a big aural present.

And Princeton are probably my biggest band crush since the first time I saw Le Switch play. They're extremely catchy indie pop with more hooks per square inch than really anyone else out there right now.

No poster quite yet, but you can hear songs from all three bands right here.
