Reminder: MBV Is Tonight At The Concourse, New Album In The Works

(They probably look a little older now)

Well, if you can deal with the Concourse Design Center for an evening, and you have a nice set of earplugs, then tonight may avail you of one of the most illuminating musical sound experiences this side of 1992. As we've previously mentioned, My Bloody Valentine's reunited lineup will be hitting San Francisco tonight. We imagine that we don't really know what's in store for us (and we're waiting to see just how epic that 45 minutes of static really is), but by all accounts it's fantastic.

In other MBV news, Kevin Shields has now confirmed to a number of sources that the band has decided to move forward with a new record, built around the foundations that were developed in '96/'97. While this does have us immeasurably excited, you'll have to pardon if it goes in the folder for "we'll believe it when we see it".

Ticketmaster's all sold out, but being a GA show, you can probably craigslist yourself some love.

UPDATE: We just discovered that Pete Kember's post-Spacemen 3 project Spectrum is opening. Get there early!
