Speedy Ortiz @ 529
Since forming last year, Northampton, MA quartet Speedy Ortiz’s output has included an album and EP’s worth of fuzzy, sneery lo-fi home recordings, the slack and weighty double-A side “Taylor Swift” b/w “Swim Fan,” recorded by Paul Q. Kolderie (Pixies, Hole) and Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr., Thurston Moore), and their latest ‘Sports EP,’ a 5-track concept slugger out on 10″ vinyl (Exploding in Sound Records).
Minton Sparks with Special Guest, Ameilia White @ Eddie’s Attic
It’s mighty hard to envision singular performances by a poet and short story author, a character actor and a songwriter being offered on a single bill. That is, until one Minton Sparks takes the stage.
