(minus the sidekick)

Tuesday night Minus The Sidekick and Microjoy will be playing at Atomic Burrito. Here’s a quote from The Hook‘s listing:

‘Holy changing lineups!: Minus The Sidekick has been lying surprisingly low since their last CD release in July, but now they’re back with a vengeance. “We’re booking shows as fast as we can,” says drummer Tom O’Halloran. Er, actually, about that “drummer” part– not really. A couple of months ago, MTS decided to alter their formula a little: “We decided to sort of take it up a notch,” explains O’Halloran. “I was a self-taught drummer, not really very good, so we auditioned a couple of guys.” Complementing new skinsmith Jonathan Flax are other changes in instrumentation that O’Halloran says include swapping guitars for keyboards and lap steel: “We’ve been emphasizing a little more of our alt-country sound,” he says.’
