    PTP's annual MBV NITE returns.  This year with 3 of the country's best dreampop bands: Captured Tracks' HEAVENLY BEAT (featuring former members of Beach Fossils), THE BILINDA BUTCHERS and XO!  

    In case you aren't familiar, each year I ask the bands who play to include at least TWO MBV covers somewhere in their set (coordinating among the bands playing so they're each playing different tracks, natch.)  Then, the rest of the nite you can expect yer host to be spinning loads of MBV trax from every era, from 'Fever' to 'M B V', plus loads of rare Kevin Shields produced tracks, MBV side-projects and of course the 25 years' worth of MBV inspired bands (and even a few outright clones).  This show sells out EVERY year, so get yer tix NOW.....
