How much do you know about the musical genre dubbed “trash pop”? Not much, you say? The songs are largely what the genre seems like it describes – equal parts scuzzy and catchy. It’s a whole lot of fun too. I mention trash pop because that’s the sort of music the band TRMRS makes. I’ve posted two songs of theirs before, “Goodtime Blues” and “Enter the Door”. Good stuff. They’ll be performing at the Empty Bottle tomorrow night at 9:30 along with Slushy and The Bingers. Should be a very good show, and tickets are only $8. You can buy them here, or if you’re quick and are reading this before midnight, you can also send an email to RSVP and get into the show for free. Not a bad deal, eh? Check it out, my fellow Chicagoans. You should also check out today’s Pick Your Poison, which is a delight. Highlights include tracks from Father John Misty, Grass Widow, Howth, Joanna Newsom, Les Momies De Palerme, Morningbell, Poor Moon and Volcano!. In the Soundcloud section, you won’t want to miss streaming a song from Real Estate.
