Headlights – Night Moves && SXSW Day Show Preview


Good news everyone,

Yesterday came an announcement that absolutely blew my mind.  The SXSW day show at First Ave this year is going to be featuring my favorite local band.  NIGHT MOVES !!!!  To make things better they are the 3rd act of 6, and they are on before Brother Ali, Doomtree, and Trampled by Turtles.  To make things even better, this is a 21+ show and it is free.  Here’s a slight recap of what I just told you.  Hopefully you can all make it (for those in the Minneapolis area) as this show is going to kick some major ass.  Here’s a recap of what I just told you:

Where:  First Ave and 7th Street Entry

When: 12pm (noon) Friday March 16th, 2012

FREE / 21+

Line-up:  Get Cryphy DJ’s  –  Prof  –  Night Moves  –  Brother Ali  –  Doomtree  –  Trampled by Turtles

Again, this show is going to be poppin’ with energy and pazzazz, and I will be throwing a full recap and review up a week from Saturday, so tune in then to hear how the show was.  Anyway, back to the track at hand.  “Headlights” is the first track off of Night Moves first studio album Colored Emotion.  It starts off with a phaser distorted guitar, similar to alot of their other songs.  The lyrics in this song particularly pop with the slower feel to the song.  Seriously, if you haven’t checked these guys out yet, you are about to miss the boat.  These guys really know how to write catchy music, and I find myself singing along to the entire album on regular occasion.  I feel like I’m babbling and if you haven’t stopped reading this post yet I thank you.  As always Listen, Rate, and Subscribe (with the Oxford comma).

Horses – Night Moves


Hey everyone, Tee-minus 3 hours until these guys rock the shit out of probably the smallest venue you’ll see.  That’s right a free show in the Whole at Coffman Memorial Union (University of Minnesota).  When I saw this show on their tour dates list, I went bananas.  I’ve made a post about Night Moves in July and how that is when I began to fall in love with them.   Their smooth synth and relaxed beats always seem to take me away to some place a bit less stressful.  This Track is off of their album “Colored Emotions” which I found for free download in July.  I hope everyone goes out to see these guys tonight, and all shows they put on in the future.  Much love to my favorite (Yes, you heard it) band to date.  Plus these guys are from right here in Minneapolis, which means everyone needs to go out tonight and buy as much merch as they can, and tell everyone they know how brilliant they are.
