Here is a List of our New York shows and the bands that we're playing with.
June 1st Demander, The Picture
We met Demander when we did the American NME tour with The Hold Steady. They are ACE. I cant wait to see them live again.
The Picture sound a bit like James to me.
June 2nd Murder Mystery, Les Sans Culottes
I have been visiting Murder Mystery's Myspace everyday for weeks. I love them. They remind me a little bit of The Magnetic Fields. Even if you cant make it to the show go to their myspace have a listen and buy their record. Here is their AMAZING video to Love Astronaut
Les Sans Culottes are awesome. They sound like a Damaged Goods band. I just had to go and check that they haven't released a record on Damaged Goods that I'd missed. I dont know why I dont already own records by them. Fantastic french glam.
June 3rd Tiny Masters Of Today, U.S Royalty
I dont know much about U.S Royalty but just went to their myspace and like their song Raincoats.
We met Tiny Masters Of Today when we were on Mute. I saw them about a month ago they were punk as fuck. I love their song Pop Chart
June 4th Cymbals Eat Guitars, Phil And The Osophers
Phil and The Osophers are ace they remind me of The Wave Pictures and Jonathan Richman with bit of Ezra Furman thrown in (although I am notorious for hearing comparisons between bands that arent really there)
Cymbals Eat Guitars are brilliant. Jasper played them to me a while ago their songs sound massive. Cant wait to see them live. They are playing with us in Philidelphia too
June 5th Jeffery Lewis, Keith Top Of The Pops And His UK/US Indie Minor Celebrity All Star Backing Band.
Im a massive fan of Jeffery Lewis. I've been trying to play a show with him since we started playing shows. Slap Dash For No Cash on our new album is a little bit about him. He is great
I play Bass for Keith in his UK Indie Minor Celebrity Backing Band. I'm terrible and yet his amazing songs always shine through. My favourite at the moment is 'Two Of The Beatles Are Dead' HERE is an entire show he played recently in London.
I think someone made me draw a fantasy band line up poster once for a magazine both Jeffery Lewis and Keith were on that poster.
The last two nights have sold out. I'm just boasting by writing about them here.
Although there are a few tickets available for the first three nights you can get them HERE
and Philidelphia HERE
