After tonight’s show at Ronny’s the Fake Fictions will cease their scrappy and utterly charming noisemaking, which means there will be one less band out there making music for what I believe to be all the right reasons. In an e-mail blast announcing the breakup, guitarist and singer Nick Ammerman explains, “The Fake Fictions are stopping playing music so that they can go to the moon.” I guess that’s an acceptable reason.

The show starts at 9 PM and the Laureates, Very Truly Yours, and Beauty and the Feast open. The Fake Fictions’ entire recorded output is still available to download for free here.
