Manchester Orchestra opened up the first of two WRXP holiday concerts last night at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. “Matt Pinfield’s Holiday Extravaganza” had an interesting mix of bands: Manchester Orchestra, Jack’s Mannequin, Passion Pit and Phoenix. The only unfortunate part about the show is that we’d only be treated to merely a half hour of Manchester Orchestra.

Last night, we had the chance to attend WRXP Matt Pinfield’s Holiday Extravaganza Ball.

Prior to taking the stage, Glassnote Records CEO Daniel Glass informed the band that they had been nominated for the Best Alternative Music Album Grammy. Is this …

101.9 RXP is a radio station that debuted a little over 7 months ago in the NY area. They play a real good mix of rock from indy to alternative to hard rock. You’ll hear Tom Petty, Interpol, Vampire Weekend, STP and Nirvana in an hour. They don’t seem to play the same songs over and over and they don’t really have a consistent playlist of songs but more of artists. They also have famed DJ/A&R man/music afficionado Matt Pinfield …
