Dirty on Purpose Co-Host MTV2’s Subterranean Dec. 10


Coming off a rousing five-show run (four of which were done in 24 hours!) at the CMJ Music Marathon, Dirty on Purpose are primed to take it to the next level, kick it up a notch, and generally become better known thanks to a sweet co-hosting gig on MTV2’s late night indie rock show, Subterranean. DoP’s episode will air Sunday, Dec. 10 at 1AM.

While I know Joe, George, Doug and DJ are gentle and kind fellows, I’d love to see one of them punch host Jim Shearer in the face when he asks them dumb questions about where they got their name. But I suppose that would be a bad move, career-wise. Still, one can dream.

I the meantime you can check out DoP’s aerobitastic "No Radio" video, and "Marfa Lights" (Pocket Mix) from Stereogum. Or download the regular version from me.

The boys are also heading out on a fairly extensive US tour, and I highly recommend you check them out if they play near you:
