Preview: Gil Mantera's Party Dream, Tonight at the Firebird!


Tonight's not only the grand re-opening of the Bluebird (as the Firebird), it's also the return of Gil Mantera's Party Dream, by far the hippest thing Cleveland has going for it. (I speak from experience.) D.X. Ferris previews the show right here, and talks about the act's new album Dreamscape, which you can download from here. Listen to a new track from it at (Tip of the hat to for pointing these links out.) I personally love the new album, despite a lack of guitars; it's super danceable and super electronic, like M83 with focus.

GPMD, "Bunz Therapy"

Now, because Rust Belt folks must stick together, GMPD is pals with Pittsburgh's Grand Buffet -- a duo which opened for Girl Talk here in January. And lo and behold, the same YouTube user who posted that GMPD vid happened to have a high-quality vid of Grand Buffet doing "Top Seacrets," which was by far the best song they performed at last month's Pageant show. You might recognize the backing song as being originally by one Mr. Don Henley. Brilliant. Video after the jump.
