News and new video from Bess Rogers

NYC singer songwriter Bess Rogers has a lot of news these days for us. She just released this new video of the song "Come Home", (directed by Molly Green); she's headed to the studio to start recording her new album; she is getting ready for SXSW where she'll be playing a bunch of unofficial shows, and for those too lazy to leave their apartments she is also preparing for a "web show" on StageIt.com on 02.13 at 5pm ET. Hey, hold on a sec, it's not free! IS THERE FREE BOOZE AT LEAST???



Murder Mistery play Zebulon and plan on getting injured

New York catchy and upbeat popsters and recent Deli band of the month Murder Mystery will be playing this Friday night (February 11th for those not near a calendar) at Zebulon. According to the band, the show will be inspired by the great success of the Spiderman musical "Turn Off The Dark," and also include dramatic acrobatics, embarrassing technical problems, and most importantly fatal injuries - mixed with new music of course! That sounds like a winner to us. Friday night the band will be playing with Philadelphia band The Homophones and New York bands MiniBoone and Shiv Hurrah. - Leah Tribbett


Octant and his robots' CD pre-release party at Pete's Candy Store on 02.19

Brooklyn experimental pop band Octant (whose only human band member we covered in the past and also interviewed about his crazy robotic band mates here) are playing two pre-release shows, one in Brooklyn and one in New Brunswick. The Brooklyn show is completely free and takes place on Saturday, February 19 at Pete’s Candy Store. Octant goes on at 10:00 sharp and will be joined by New Brunswick band Trintron. Available at the show will be limited edition CD versions of the record with hand-stamped covers, as well as free posters and free 1" buttons (there will also be 2.5" buttons for $2.00). The New Brunswick show will take place at CoLab Arts Space on Sunday, February 20. The doors are at 6:00, the show starts at 7:00 and Octant plays second. There will be complimentary wine and cheese while supplies last. Also playing are New Brunswick bands Trintron, Seahorse Valley and Fairychaser. The poster and 1" buttons will be free at CoLab Arts as well, but the CD versions of the record will be $5. You can listen and download a copy of the LP, or pre- order the vinyl, at Octant’s website or purchase it via iTunes. - Leah Tribbett
