The Person and the People | Triple Rock Social Club | Sunday, October 26
Less than a year after the Person & the People released Big Whoop, the St. Paul quartet are set to release another album of taut, catchy power pop, What a Drag. The crisp riffs and plentiful harmonies drive the songs forward.

Ahead of their record release show, Gimme Noise spoke with vocalist/guitarist Nick Costa. He detailed the new album's recording process, how their collective sense of humor colors their music, and the reason why he was the only one who didn't clap while recording What a Drag.

Southside Desire | 7th St. Entry | Wednesday, October 22
"At the time of [our second album's release party] I'm going to be nine months pregnant," explains Southside Desire lead vocalist Marvel Devitt, resting her hands unconsciously on her stomach. "I try and think of it as the newest member of the band. We'll have to train our baby to play tambourine real quick."

Devitt, her husband and songwriting partner Trevor Engelbrektson, drummer Damien Tank, and vocalist Joy Spika are gathered at vocalist Gloria Iacono's Nicollet Island home. The semi-industrial apartment would be an awesome place for her bandmates' kids to play. There are all sorts of fun nooks and curtains to hide behind, and a Milky Way mural begging to be a backdrop for outer space adventures.

The Pixies | State Theatre | 10/11/14
You can't talk about '90s indie rock without mentioning the Pixies -- even if they broke up early in the decade. The band left an influential ringing in everyone's ears that has lasted to this day. The band will be marking 10 years since they got back together -- which launched in Minneapolis at the Fine Line in 2004 -- with a return to the Twin Cities. This time, they will be armed with new music from their latest album, Indie Cindy.

Gimme Noise caught up drummer David Lovering in Los Angeles as he was prepping for the tour to talk about growing up and getting wiser and how they have adapted to the changes in the music industry.
