Castledoor & The Watson Twins @ The Natural History Museum, 4/4/08
Two weeks ago, local bands Castledoor (MySpace) and The Watson Twins (MySpace) performed for First Fridays (MySpace) at The Natural History Museum in Exposition Park.
Those in attendance were rewarded with several songs from The Watson Twins' upcoming album Fire Songs (which streets on June 24th), not to mention an energetic set (concluding with "Remember When") by Castledoor. Speaking of one of this year's bands to watch, they start their month-long residency on May 5th at Detroit Bar (MySpace) in Long Beach.
Meanwhile, the May 2nd edition of First Fridays will feature music by The Dodos (MySpace) and Dublab DJs Carlos Niño (MySpace) and Morpho (MySpace), while the June 6th edition (the final one for the season) will feature music by The Mountain Goats (MySpace) and Dublab DJs Kutmah (MySpace) and Nobody (MySpace).
Special thanks to Castledoor, The Watson Twins, and The Natural History Museum.
