Mary Timony plays Helium

Guitarist and singer Mary Timony will play the music of her 1990s band Helium at Marble Bar, backed by members of the band Hospitality. Of all the alt-rock reunions, this is one worthy of absolute superfandom. Pitchfork rightfully called Mary Timony a guitar god recently, citing others who you should trust to back the claim. Timony’s music is intentionally woozy-sounding, brilliant, and strange pop music with lyrics that’ll make you want to borrow your cousin’s math textbook so you can scribble them all over the margins. Noveller opens with smeary, shimmering solo guitar awesomeness; so get there the night before, and camp out.
