TVD's Parting Shots

Earlier in the week we tipped you off to the Panda Head Preview Party for issue Number 4 happening tonight at Comet Ping Pong, and now the on-line magazine’s editrix-in chief, Morgan does us one better by kicking your ass into the weekend with an inspired set of ten—specifically designed to spirit you right up Connecticut Avenue, NW, later on.

(Plus, they’re giving away a bunch of St. Vincent tickets (and vinyl!) for those of you who show up early...)

"Tonight is the Panda Head Magazine Issue 4 Preview Party at Comet Ping Pong, and - as music and style are inextricably linked (if not, at times, one in the same) - here's a playlist of the top 10 songs currently inspiring my closet. Some (The Sword, Out of It, and No Hope Kids) are all about old Converse and vintage t-shirts with the sleeves rolled up; others (Tusk, Factory Girl, Fig Tree, and A Little At A Time) are informing the too-short-floral-dress and dusty-cowboy-boot aesthetic I've been favoring lately; and I Want You, and Oh Mandy, and Little Triggers are wishful thinking for hot, lazy summer days spent in high-waisted bell-bottoms and non-existent tank tops. Pay special attention to the New Rock Church of Fire songs - not only are they playing tonight's party (where they'll also be premiering their new music video), but we're doing a big feature on them in the next issue, which will be live and online this Monday at"
