A Reason to Smile Smile

Our music blog, DC9 at Night, features a brief chit-chat with Ryan Hamilton -- one half of Smile Smile, we're not not sure which Smile -- concerning the band's October 17 show in New York City, at the Alphabet Lounge. As it happens, Hamilton and Jencey Hirunrusme have been invited to perform at the annual CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival shindig, as have St. Vincent, Centro-matic and Eisley (hope I didn't leave out any folks with local connex). The band promises updates, with pics, on DC9 at Night following the showcase. Till then, you really oughta get yourself a copy of the band's Blue Roses, which you can preview in its entirety here should you need convincing, and you shouldn't. --Robert Wilonsky
