AC Newman - Record Release Show
Download: “Encyclopedia Of Classic Takedowns” – AC Newman

As I mentioned previously, New Pornographers frontman AC (Carl) Newman is putting out a new record on Oct 9 entitled Shut Down The Streets. As is the custom these days, the new record is streaming in advance of its release, but rather than NPR, iTunes, or Spin, SDTS is streaming over at eyeball aggregator, the Huffington Post. In addition to his already announced tour dates (Oct 22 @ Bowery Ballroom), Carl is also playing a special one off record release show at The Rock Shop on Monday, Oct 8. To get tickets to that show, you can purchase the album starting on Saturday, Oct 6 at the following NYC independent record stores (while supplies last):
Other Music
Sound Fix
Ear Wax
In Living Stereo
Rebel Rebel
Co Op 87
