Sirius Respect Takes Third Place in WNYC’s 2009 New Sounds Listener Poll!

Thanks so much to everyone who voted for The Respect Sextet in WNYC’s 2009 New Sounds Listener Poll!

Amazingly—you can even kind of hear the disbelief in John Schaefer’s voice—“Sirius Respect” managed to eek its way all the way to THIRD PLACE, thereby solidifying Respect’s place in musical (and world) history. We plan to get our third place medal bronzed, for posterity.

Finally, a reminder that on Tuesday, January 12 (that’s this coming Tuesday), Respect is playing a great show at (le) Poisson Rouge, with special guest Ethan Iverson opening the show on piano solo. More info on that show can be found here.
