Morning Benders, Shark?, and Cuddle Magic at Housing Works Tonight

We're super excited to be heading out to this special show tonight at Housing Works featuring the amazing Morning Benders, After the Jump faves Shark?, and Cuddle Magic. The Morning Benders' Chris Taylor produced new record Big Echo is fantastic and comes out March 9th on Rough Trade. Dig their new single "Excuses" above.

Any show at an intimate venue (read: amazing charity-based bookstore) like Housing Works is worth braving the elements to get to, and the fact that the headliner is Morning Benders, is even more incentive. Admission is $5 along with a used CD for the CD swap which will also be taking place. Cool, fun times to be had in the snow. Show is sponsored by Hype Machine and hosted by Max Silvestri. See you there. Morning Benders' and Shark? tour dates after the jump, including a show this Saturday with Surfer Blood at Market Hotel.

hey, as an aside, housing works is a fucking cool place and it supports a great cause. even if you don't like the bands that much you should still go and buy some crap.
