May tours ahoy for all!
Joensuu 1685 start out a pan european tour with the mighty Wolf Parade, with a short stop off at The Great Escape (catch em here on the 14th May) plus a London show at Notting Hill Arts Club the day after.
And, a long-awaited treat also - Washed Out and Small Black are also touring the UK, Holland, Belgium, Germany and France from May into June. A double bill that's causing a lot of excitement, more details here myspace/smallblack and here myspace/washedout . Lots and lots of summer festival appearances to be announced, shortly.
Rangda, the psych supergroup on Drag City comprised of Ben Chasny from Six Organs, drummer Chris Corsano and the inimitable Sir Richard Bishop are also europe bound in May with a few short dates in the UK, too. Check here for individual shows. They've also been asked by Godspeed to play December's ATP. Go Rangda, go!
Dam Mantle is also stepping it up a gear - following a tour with Gold Panda the duo are down to play The Great Escape and Stag and Dagger festival in May both Glasgow and London, with summer bookings flying thick and fast. If you don't know him, then lucky you as you've got something pretty special to discover.
