No big surprise, but the new Bird Names record, Open Relationship, is a piece of weirdo pop brilliance that sounds pretty much unlike anything else happening right now, unless there's such a thing as a Chinese Os Mutantes I don't know about. It's so good that the powerful positive vibes surrounding its release cannot be contained in just one party, so the band is taking over Ronny's for two nights this weekend. They've packed both bills with quality openers. Tonight they're bringing out freak-funkers Killer Whales and tomorrow Emmett Kelly's Cairo Gang will be along for the ride. Both shows are highly damn recommended.
