Hooray For Earth @ the pill tonight

My bio-blurb from the pill boston dot com on tonight's party at GS:

Friday September 18: Hooray For Earth
a jittery display of dirty-pop celebrations
The last time Hooray For Earth played the pill, they were called Raymond, we were in our first year at Great Scott and they busted out a pretty dope Placebo cover that had us all whacked out. Well, we figured it was high time to do another dance with the infamous Boston-NYC dirty-pop dudes, and together we aim to slay Allston Dance City in a fiery display of know-better rock this Friday night at the pill. The jittery, loud lo-fi buzz-rock of Hooray For Earth has always defied categorization and labeling (see?), but New York blog rounded up a few recent praises all tidy-like: Says NPR: "With an ear for both '80s-inspired synth pop and contemporary indie rock sensibilities, Hooray For Earth falls somewhere between The Magnetic Fields and Voxtrot." Check. Says Bostonist: "With their self-titled debut, the members of Hooray For Earth sought a middle ground between Nine Inch Nail’s industrial thrash and the grunge force of Nirvana." Check again. Says RCRD LBL: "Think Joy Division plus Guided By Voices plus a lot of narcoleptic visions." Check City, population: you, Hooray For Earth and the pill. Do it up nice and look sharp.

Catch a preview of Hooray For Earth, including the delicious jam “Take Care,” over at, and while you’re digging, try to find their Christmas song from last year, “I Hope You Get Coal.” Before and after the band, DJs Ken & Michael V spin Britpop, Modern Indie & Beyond at Boston’s best dance party, 12 years running this October.
