The deadline for submissions from artists interested in performing at the 2011 MidPoint Music Festival recently came and went. Performers for this fall's 10th anniversary MPMF are being decided by the judging panel and touring headliners are being booked as you read this, so expect the flow of MidPoint information to increase over the next few weeks, with showcasing acts being announced, as well as other details and wrinkles to this year's event. One announcement is that the new School for Creative & Performing Arts will serve as a venue for the first time this fall.

Wussy and Koala Fires: Local Music Rewired

2 Comments · Wednesday, September 22, 2010
Two local Indie Rock bands have had their music dismantled and pieced back together by a slew of area producers and electronic musicians. If you’re familiar with the Rock bands Wussy and The Koala Fires, imagining them as dance-floor-friendly Electro acts is a far-fetched concept. But both new remix projects are revelatory, retaining (and often putting more focus on) the songwriting and vocals of the originals.  

Caribou: Where the Dear and Caribou Play

Dan Snaith takes his one-man band out of the '60s and into the Dance club

0 Comments · Wednesday, September 22, 2010
On his first two full-length releases and a handful of CD singles and live recordings, Dan Snaith had established himself as a rather well-informed and astute purveyor of Psychedelic Pop as he transformed it into his own unique brand of one-man-laptop bravado. But when it came time to begin work on new material to follow up 2008's 'Andorra,' the only certainty was that Snaith didn't want to re-create that same sound.  

Tom Tom Club: Heads Above, Groove Below

Pioneering rhythm section goes back out on road in anticipation of 30th anniversary

It's not been easy to see Tom Tom Club play live. The pioneering, avant-percussive Dance Rock band, formed in 1981 by Talking Heads bassist Tina Weymouth and drummer Chris Frantz (her husband), has taken a back seat in recent years to family life. The group is doing just 10 dates on the East and West coasts this tour, including a headlining gig Saturday night at the MidPoint Music Festival.  

Music, Art and Film at the Public Library

There’s no need to shush anyone at the Main Public Library during the 2010 MidPoint Music Festival. The library, right in the heart of the festival’s downtown action, is hoping to keep MPMF fans busy during the daytime hours with free live music and music-related art shows and documentary films.
