Tonight at Noise Pop: Matthew Dear, plus a movie about the guy from that band Morphine

Firstly, Matthew Dear rules. Just listen to this song — probably one of the best of all time:

And I can attest to that his live show is great too. Just gothy enough without being annoying. Danceable music made by a live band with a stoic but incredibly charismatic frontman. Kind of David Bowie-like maybe? And it’s not sold out yet! Tickets and info here.

Secondly, there’s also a movie on tonight that looks pretty good, about the life and times of Mark Sandman, the deceased frontman from Morphine, that band with the saxophone-driven mid-’90s hit “Honey White” that we all saw on MTV a million times. Here’s the trailer:

        The first time I saw them was in 1992 or so, in a weird backroom at Amherst College. I had never heard of them, and Mark Sandman appeared to be very, very, very high. And they were fecking brilliant.

        Caught them a few times after that in Boston and elsewhere, and then had tickets to see them out here at the Greek, but Sandman died a few days before the show. Really sad.
