The Powder Kegs a few times. I came across their song, "Mariposa", and listened to it almost non-stop for much of April. I put down some money for their Empty Side EP (name your price for the EP on bandcamp) and have been thoroughly pleased with it. Now they have a full length album in the works expected to be released in 2011. They are sharing one of their new tracks, "When the Body Tricks the Mind" which you can preview below.
Tonight at T.T. the Bear's Place in Cambridge, MA they will be playing with Dan Baker, Robert Blake, and Streightangular and I expect it will be a fun show. I am glad this show was able to a spot in Boston after Harper's Ferry closed (where the concert was originally booked) because I think that weird cavernous room would have appeared too empty on a Tuesday before Thanksgiving. Hopefully the turnout tonight is a good one and that the pumping bass from the "Crunksgiving" dance party in the club below will be easy to ignore.
Even if you can't make the show tonight, check out the songs below. Click the down arrow on the Mariposa song for a free download.
