Pains of Being Pure at Heart | In Love, on Tour

Sundays in the park with TPOBPAH

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart have finally released their self-titled debut on Slumberland Records and it's a total charmer: 10 songs, endless hooks, clever lyrics, bad puns, and fuzzy guitars. I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't get the Best New Music tag when Pitchfork reviews it (tomorrow?). The band plays Mercury Lounge on Saturday, kicking off a month-long tour with The Depreciation Guild before bopping down to to SXSW. Tickets are still available, but act now, this show will be sold out before the end of the week I'm guessing.

If you miss this one, TPOBPAH play the Bell House on March 13 and that show is with England's amazing Let's Wrestle, so if you had to choose one or the other, I'd actually say wait a month. Or, like me, go to both.
