Corita at NYCPopfest 2010!

I am sure my 18-year-old-self would be jealous of me right now not because I'm about to hammer in the nail on the coffin of my twenties, but because my post-punk band of my dreams Corita is playing a free show on Saturday afternoon, May 22nd as part of the NYCPopfest. As a teenager I loved indie pop as much as I loved punk and post-punk and wished I was part of a cute, cardigan sweater wearing community. We might leave the cardigans at home on Saturday, but we'll for sure coordinate our outfits and wear the spiffy shoes Corita is becoming known for (I hope we are also becoming known for our good songwriting, but we'll see). We play at 3 p.m. at Spike Hill in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on Saturday May 22nd and its FREE. We're profiled on the NYCPopfest blog here

Lali Puna Feature on Venus Zine

I got to profile German "indietronica" act Lali Puna, of my favorite bands, for I spoke with Valerie Trebeljar, Lali Puna's main lady, over on a transatlantic telephone call and I had to control my enthusiasm while speaking to one of my favorite musicians. The feature highlights their latest album Our Inventions. Check out the profile on here.
