Manic Productions presents VETIVER, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TITLES @ The Space – Jan. 22nd

Manic Productions strikes again with another killer show in a string of killer shows this Friday, January 22nd at The Space. Performing will be none other than San Francisco’s Vetiver, Brattleboro, VT.’s Happy Birthday and New Haven’s own Titles. Vetiver is currently in the early dates of a national tour, the latest in a series of shows in support of last year’s Tight Knit LP released on Sub Pop. The indie-folk group, led by singer/songwriter Andy Cabic, is currently riding a wave of buzz both for their own musical merits and for their association with off and on collaborator, and current buzz king, Devendra Banhart. Joining Vetiver will be Sub Pop labelmate and Brattleboro, Vermont natives Happy Birthday. The unlikely success of this band is, in hindsight, not surprising given their unique pop sensibilities and sheer likability. Look out for their self-titled debut in March. Last, but not least, will be local openers Titles. Now in their fifth year, Titles will be playing their first show in over 6 months. The indie-pop quartet has garnished lots of positive press both locally and regionally with its last album ‘Up With the Sun’ landing on iTunes best of 2008 list. The band is currently readying its newest album Dirt Bell due out in late February/early March on Safety Meeting Records. Expect to see a modified lineup of the band following the departure of guitarist Matt Wilson last year.
