Kyp Malone‘s regular band is taking a hiatus for about a year, but that’s not slowing him down, Kyp recently released a solo record under the name of Rain Machine and now he’s out on tour with his new band to support it. He premiered his new material at The Bell House in September and next week he’ll be making his penultimate tour stop at the Bowery Ballroom on Oct 24 with Sharon Van Etten, Violens, Imaad Wasif, Threes And Nines, Stricken City as part of the CMJ Music Marathon (Buy Tickets). But wait… that’s not all, though Saturday is Kyp’s next to last headlining gig, it has just been announced that he’ll be opening for indie rock stalwarts, Pixies, on their upcoming Doolittle tour. If you don’t have tickets already, they might be a little tough to come by right now, but Rain Machine will be performing on night 3 (Nov 25) of the Pixies Hammerstein residency. Tickets for the Bowery CMJ show are still available, but I’m also giving away a pair of tickets to that show to one lucky reader who emails me at contests@bumpershine.com and tells me the name of Kyp Malone’s other band. A winner will be selected and notified on Wednesday, October 21. (Note: All contest entrants will be added to the Anti- records mailing list, unless they choose opt out in the body of the email.)

Listen to Kyp Malone‘s interview with Ben Sisario (who surprisingly didn’t mention the Pixies at all) on last week’s New York Times Music PopCast.
