As the world goes crazy for The Mynabirds, Love Drunk and Hear Nebraska today posted a new video for the song “Buffalo Flower.” You can view the video, which was shot in a Dundee basement, right here.
There’s already rumbling that tomorrow night’s Mynabirds’ CD release show (which also is a 5-year anniversary show for The Slowdown) could sell out, especially at the “Nice Price” of just $5. Better get your tickets now.

The Mynabirds isn’t the only female-fronted local band with new music. Fronted by signer/songwriter Marta Fiedler, Blue Bird began streaming its entire debut via Spotify yesterday. You can listen from the band’s website, bluebirdlovesyou.com (but you have to have Spotify). Blue Bird’s album release show is June 16 at The Waiting Room.

Tonight’s Icky Blossoms/Dead Wave show at The Sydney was originally supposed to be a pseudo “secret show,” that was only going to be promoted via word of mouth. But apparently someone spilled the beans, and word of the show began filtering through the internet on via Facebook yesterday evening. Sounds like Howard now also is on the bill. This one could get crowded. 9 p.m., $5.
