MFR-favorite Gospel Gossip ended 2007 on quite the high note, what with the release of their debut album, Sing Into My Mouth, a City Pages feature and gobs of deserved ink for their music. Needless to say, 2008 looks very promising for the Northfield, MN, quartet, and the band seems to be wasting no time in ringing in the new year with a flurry of activity.
First off is a free show tonight at the Triple Rock, along with fellow MPLS like neo-post-punk inspired The Chambermaids (think of a less angular Mission Of Burma). Also playing are lo-fi indie-rockers Kill To Kill, whose treble-heavy guitar tones and vocals are reminiscent of early Sleater-Kinney or Heavens To Betsy, and Joy Division-inspired Austin Scarlett.
Doors are at 9 p.m for the 21+ show. Those of you who aren't of age, fret not, because the day after the T-Rock show (i.e., tomorrow), the band will be stopping by the Radio K studios for a performance on the station's local music day. Set your radio dials to 106.5 (Minneapolis) and 100.7 (St. Paul) around 4 p.m. to hear GG in action.
Also worth mentioning is that Gospel Gossip will be preaching the good news at First Avenue's Best New Bands Of 2007, along with fellow MFR-favs To Kill A Petty Bourgeoisie, Gay Witch Abortion, and a whole host of other acts*. Check out the full line-up here. Tickets for the 18+ show are $7 dollars and can be bought here.
