Seattle's KEXP.org is setting up shop from September 7th - 9th at Engine Studios in Chicago and they've invited The M's in for an on-air performance. They are making the most of the opportunity by bringing the horn & string sections. That's right, The M's as an 11-piece.
Space is extremely limited, so go here: http://kexp.org/events/special.asp now and sign up.
Thursday, September 7, 7pm- 9pm
KEXP In Chicago - The Darkroom, KEXP Listener Party.
As if the studio appearance wasn't enough, KEXP keeps the generosity coming with another free show and they once again ask The M's to take part. They will.
Both shows are, obviously, recommended or else I wouldn't be posting about them. Sheck it out!
