Bird Names & Bubbly Mommy Gun, two names that will be dripping from conversations of the in-crowd come prime time this Fall. They hail all the way from the creative gene pool of Athens, Georgia.
They will be making their North Eastern debut in New York City Saturday Oct. 1st (at Northern Spy Records Festival at Citi Field), Sunday Oct. 2nd (a special 3pm showcase at the PS1 Space at the MoMA), and for a live set on WFMU 91.1fm (Monday, Oct. 3rd at 11am) as part of their Atlantic coast "All-Stars of Fringe Pop" tour.
Bird Names tours in support of their fifth full-length, "Metabolism: a Salute to the Energy of the Sun" (Northern Spy Records, 2011), which has been noted as "a mind-blowing'. Formed in mid-2000s Chicago, art pop veterans Bird Names has produced a series of highly-recommended low fi albums and toured extensively. The "All-Stars of Fringe Pop Tour" marks the live debut of the extra heavy Bird Names Psychedelic Big Band. Which features a 6-piece band playing taut compositions, composed of three guitarists, two drummers, & a keyboardist.
Flagpole magazine says they are, "effortlessly nuanced pop music, immensely enjoyable." So it's comforting to know that the concert will be a complete and total success. With names and talent like theirs, the sky is just the beginning.
