Ten Million Lights are excited to have been selected to play Reverb Records’ The Fuzzy Ball at both Neumo’s in Seattle, WA and The Wonder Ballroom in Portland, OR.  We had an amazing time, made a ton of new friends and loved watching some of our favorite bands grace the stage.  Check out this video of 10ML playing Fast Asleep at Neumo’s.

So many amazing bands played the festival including Pete International Airport, This Blinding Light, The Prids, 1776, Happy Prescriptions, The Purrs, Joy Wants Eternity, Hawkeye, We Miss The Earth, but some of the highlights of the night included Rick Bain & The Genius Position playing The Stone Rose's I Wanna Be Adored, Cest la Mort playing Lush's Sweetness and The Light, and The Upsidedown doing The Jesus and Mary Chain.

Thanks to KEXP, Pop Tomorrow and Another Rainy Saturday for helping to publicize the event.

Reviews coming in for Ten Million Lights

17 Nov

Big thanks to Nick from Northwest Adventures in Audio for his well thought out review of the debut Ten Million Lights record.  He said, “10ml’s panned mix of Emily Logan’s caramel vocals and Ryan Carroll’s ashtray mouth resonates over eerie, well-layered guitars, but the metronome hi-hats make this release perfect for driving through the crisp Willamette breeze of autumn.” – Read the whole review here.
