New Music For The Weekend: 500th Post Edition

I never thought Exitfare would make 100 posts, let alone 500, but I managed to keep this thing going long enough to write about some cool bands and make some new friends. To celebrate this milestone, I am giving away a pack of CDs, all from bands that I have blogged about over the past two years. If you like the site, chances are you'll like the albums. First person to e-mail me gets it!

This weekend is full of great shows, starting with two of our longtime favorites tonight.

03.30: Birdmonster/Ra Ra Riot @ Middle East Up
03.30: The Pill [f/ The Information] @ Great Scott

Elk City: What do ex-members of Luna and The Lovelies do after their bands break up? They continue making engaging, dreamy indie rock. Look for New Believers, which is out through Friendly Fire on April 17th.

The Delta Spirit: My first experience with these guys was at the Skewer BBQ at SXSW, and all I knew was the name. After a few songs, I finally got ahold of what they had going, as it bounced around between the punk rock revivalism of Nation Of Ulysses, Northern Soul and boozy bar rock. Definitely a band to keep an eye on.

The Noisettes: This British garagey/blues act has just dropped What's The Time, Mr. Wolf?, an album rife with scorching tunes that can only be experienced properly live. They are kicking off a US tour tonight in LA, and then are coming back later this spring.
[mp3] "Don't Give Up"

Sally Shapiro: Surprsingly enough, this is my first post about Sally, and you think I would be all over her considering this is right down my alley, bringing to mind electro-pop greats like Saint Etienne and Kylie Minogue. Her first album, Disco Romance, is available now on Diskokaine as an import.
