CMJ 2008: The Rosebuds Perform at Mercury Lounge

The CMJ 2008 Music Marathon lineup last Saturday night included Raleigh, North Carolina favorite sons and daughter, The Rosebuds, at Mercury Lounge on the Lower East Side of NYC.

Ivan Howard (vocals/guitar/ drums/ bass/keyboards/programming) and Kelly Crisp (vocals/keyboard/drums/guitar) are the driving forces of the Merge Records band who released a new album on October 7 (available on iTunes) called, “Life Like.”

Below is a limited edition, East Village Podcasts interview with Ivan, as well as a music clip from the show.

In the clip, our apologies regarding audio from the show – we stood in front of the speaker with the guitar and drums, pretty much. Hence, the vocals are inaudible.

The Rosebuds also have a blog where you can get all the latest buds of news.
