Reposted on behalf of the band, in hopes of recruiting more lonely Brooklynites into their rose wielding army:

Holy Heartbeats,

A friendly reminder that The Secret History are throwing a party this Thursday March 27th at the Galapagos art space in Williamsburg Brooklyn. In addition to a live performance by us, we will be joined by two rainy pop bands who I really like. The Isles (a New York band who have already made a splash in the UK) and The Exeter Popes.

We are excited to be returning to the stage after taking a bit of time to finish up our debut release, a 5 song e.p. which will be released on the Le Grand Magistery label later this Spring. We will playing a group of songs concerned with varied topics including Rosalia the Martyr of Palermo, Love and squalor in former Soviet Union, and record collecting in the basements of Haunted Houses. In addition, the first 20 or so punters will receive a free 4 piece "Jonah CMYK" badge set...all sepia and solemnity...a collaboration with our indispensible ally, designer Laura Kunkel, the
singular force behind the stirring show posters that we staple gun over Camel ads.

The party will start around 9:30 with The Secret History performing at 11. Miss Modular and Kevington from the sublime Mondo dance party will be spinning between bands and after. The combination of song, spirits and architecture promises to reinforce the soulful pursuit of difference, which...along with soulful pursuit of quality blue jeans, has more or less defined our lives. Or said more simply...you could use a night out. Friday at the office is just a time-kill anyways...

So Come Round and write yourself onto a page or two.
