While most of the major NYC venues have slowly been announcing some or all of their CMJ lineups, Mercury Lounge has been a tad tight lipped
. Well, one small detail has finally come out - blog favorites Forward, Russia!
will be playing the Mercury on Thursday, November 2nd.
The band is on Leeds-based Dance To The Radio records, which has a deal of some sort with Mute in the U.S. Not sure if this is a Mute showcase or not. Some other Mute artists? The Knife, Jose Gonzalez, Liars, Nitzer Ebb and Paul van Dyk. I can also tell you that the band is touring in November with Snowden
. So maybe one or more of those artists will show up at Mercury as well. Or maybe not.
