Whartscape Pre: The Mai Shi

Tips for establishing a healthy, sustainable level of indie cred and/or blog froth:

Secure decent Pitchfork review (must be 8.0 or higher)
Headline Bar Mitzvahs (post-ironically)
Lots of Casio synths
Perform 16 times in 5 days at SXSW
Reenact scenes from The Wire, sell DVD on tour
Play mad basement parties with The Death Set
Cover Miley Cyrus (post-post-ironically)

The Mae Shi - Run To Your Grave (from HLLLYH)

Mind you The Mae Shi are not a doe-eyed buzz bin band or anything, GvB was talking about them three years ago before we were even in bloggy diapers. Catch them next Saturday afternoon with The Death Set, Celebration, Oxes and more more more. Tickets at whamcity.com.
