From the ol Hotline: Local bands are rounding out the lineup for the week-long FNX Radio Disorientation 2009 concert series, which on Monday kicks off a five night run at the Lansdowne Pub. Cambridge new wave comet The New Collisions will warm it up for synth-pop lad Owl City on Tuesday night, while Allston electro punks Televandals.comhave been tapped to open for Brooklyn hipster duo Matt & Kim on Wednesday.
One remaining slot, a support gig for UK post-punk gloomers White Lies on Thursday, should be announced today. The Diso-’09 series already had some local flavor, as New Hampshire’s Wild Light start it up proper on the launch night.
All the shows start at 7 p.m. and are free, but you have to hit up www.wfnx.com and get on the guest list to enter. Each night should be a tough ticket in the House Formerly Known as Karma Club.
The oh-so-sweet complete lineup features:
Oct. 5: Dearly Beloved and Wild Light
Oct. 6: Owl City and The New Collisions
Oct. 7: Matt & Kim and Televandals.com
Oct. 8: White Lies
Oct. 9: Black Joe Lewis and White Rabbits
