…no, seriously. I have a feeling it could hang around a while.
From the press release:
“UK sensations The Ting Tings are touring America and will be stopping in St. Louis for a headline show at the Bluebird and a special instore performance at Vintage Vinyl. With a #1 single & album in the UK, owning dance floors across the globe and performing at Lollapalooza, don’t expect to see the band in such intimate places and spaces like the Bluebird and Vintage Vinyl when The Ting Tings make their next trip across the pond. Bring your dancing shoes and don’t miss a special performance by The Ting Tings on July 31st at 6:00PM at Vintage Vinyl. After the performance the band will be hanging out & signing copies of their debut LP and CD release “We Started Nothing”.”
This year’s RFT award nominees were recently announced, and they’re chock full of acts you’ve (yes, you!) seen at KWUR Week. The Feed, who were last minute fill-ins from 2006, were nominated for best live act and best pop band. The Sex Robots, who were part of the 2007 St. Louis showcase, will be competing with the Feed for best pop band (pop?), as well as getting a best album nomination for Peat Sounds (technically by the Pubes, but hey, who’s counting). So Many Dynamos, who played at the same show, were nominated for best live act and best indie rock band, where they’ll compete with Man Man opener(/overshadower?) Bunnygrunt. From this year’s slate of shows, Jumbling Towers and Say Panther each will be competing with So Many Dynamos for indie rock honors, and from the year’s only hip hop show at the Gargoyle, Earthworms earned a nomination for hip-hop act, and DJ Crucial for hip-hop DJ. Basically, KWUR Week is the shit.
