Still Life Still Takes Residency at Mercury Lounge This Month

January 5th, 2010

After making their NYC debut at this past October’s CMJ Music Marathon, Still Life Still is returning with a residency at Mercury Lounge, playing four nights in January, beginning tomorrow, when they open for Des Roar—plus headlining the early show on the 13th, opening for Freelance Whales on the 20th and opening the late show for Blip Blip Bleep on the 29th. The Toronto quintet, musically reminiscent of Arts and Crafts labelmate Broken Social Scene, put out both their first EP, Pastel, and LP, Girls Come Too, last summer. And now they’re bringing that music here this month before heading out on a U.S. tour with Wild Beasts (including a show at The Bowery Ballroom on February 26th). Check out Still Life Still playing “Pastel,” above, and then do your best to see then in person this month.
