Meeting of Important People is a three-piece garage-pop band from Pittsburgh, PA. The band’s debut single “Mothers Pay More” ignited a media and blogging frenzy in the Summer of 2008, and their 2009 debut album on the Authentik label has been named a top release by several blogs and radio stations, including influential station WYEP-FM.
MOIP's new summer 2010 EP release “Quit Music", a pleasant little collection of creepy suburban indie-pop songs, now has even more folks listening intently worldwide.
The band has recorded with producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron&Wine), has starred in a heavily-viewed cardboard city music video, traveled extensively, gained airplay on terrestrial and satellite stations, and has shared the stage with renowned artists such as Ok Go, The Secret Machines, and Sam Roberts Band. Several of their songs have even been heard in high-profile television shows and films, if you listened closely enough.
MOIP keeps the loud parts loud, the pretty parts pretty, and the people happy.
