The Black Cat may be shuttered throughout January, but it is opening for select shows, including a celebration of the 25th anniversary of emo rockers Mineral on Thursday, Jan. 17. You can win tickets to go with Parklife DC.
Mineral formed in 1994 and released two full-length albums from Austin before calling it day four years later. But the band reunited in 2014, and frontman Chris Simpson and company have a few new songs this year.
In a review for Consequence of Sound, Lake Schatz welcomed “Your Body Is the World,” the latest song by Mineral: “[T]he nearly five-minute cut is sees snaking guitars and steadily chugging bass coming together complementarily like a well-oiled machine. It all eventually builds up to not one, but two pivotal moments: a glimmering, reflective period of rest followed by a crunchier outro. There’s plenty of textures to go around, and this is coming from a band that’s just woken up from a long slumber.”
