Mint Pillow will be busy over the coming weeks. First DJ’ing the annual NOCtoberfest party at G2 Tech Group this Thursday (10/26) in Boston’s innovation district – one of his favorite parties of the year. This year will be a Dead Rock Star Ball and the costume party will be accompanied by a very special VJ set as Pillow mixes some of his favorite videos of musical heroes who’ve gone onto the next journey. Registration required for attendance, and you can peep the available costume list here.
Come Sunday (10/29) it’s State Park’s Halloween Social – which is a free rock show with Creaturos, Beware the Dangers of a Ghost Scorpion!, and Mint Pillow spinning indie/garage/psych jamz before, in-between, and after, an all vinyl affair. Party kicks off at 8pm.
Next Saturday (11/4) is a private event for Pillow in Burlington, MA – and on 11/11 he’ll be out at Cold Harbor Brewing Co. in Westborough, MA from 4pm – 9pm for a kickin’ party for the release of their first ever can.
See ya’ll around!

For fans of the Rochester, NY based indie pop band Howlo, the announcement of a Ben Morey solo album is big news. Known primarily for punchy indie rock, Mt. Doom finds Morey exploring more of a cosmic country sound. Featuring the efforts of nearly 30 members of the Rochester indie rock community, including turns from members of Pleistocene, Green Dreams, Maybird, Northern Spies, and of course, Howlo – Mt. Doom is a bold and lush soon to be classic.
To celebrate the release, Visions of the Unexcused was granted an exclusive stream of the tune “New Life” – which finds Morey’s folk sound enhanced by ghostly steel guitar & mournful back-up harmonies.
