Cardiac Party Is Breaking Up
Cardiac Party is breaking up. Considering the Phoenix electro-pop outfit's Teen Challenge was one of my favorite local CDs of the year, I'd say this is very unfortunate news, though if there's any silver lining it's that the band's bassist Jason Woodbury may have more time to write the excellent features and reviews he's been doing for us.
Here's a statement from the band's frontman Ryan McDowell:
Cardiac Party for both practical and personal reasons can't function as a unit any longer. Our momentum is deflated, and unfortunately it's not a project that any of its members are invested in. The summer of 2010, I will be leaving for Los Angeles. Our last show is November 3rd at Modified with Times New Viking and Axeman....
Best wishes to everyone in the band.
