Superdrag - the original line up, don't you know - have reconvened and have a new album coming out in March 17th entitled "Indsutry Giants", as you probably know. What might be new is that the lead track from the album - 'Slow To Anger' - is now available as a free download from their myspace. Huzzah! It is quite good and has me looking forward to St. Patrick's Day even more.
They've also announced some tour dates, also on their myspace - but I'll put em here too. Like Bishop Allen, they are playing in Chicago. Unlike Bishop Allen, they are playing in Chicago after I am in Chicago. Sad face. :( Maybe you can make it, as they put on a mighty fantastic live show well worth checking out.
Those tour dates:
FRI MARCH 13 : KNOXVILLE, TN : BARLEY'S TAPROOM W/ MIC HARRISON & THE HIGH SCORE
SAT MARCH 14 : NASHVILLE, TN : EXIT/IN W/ MIC HARRISON & THE HIGH SCORE
WED MARCH 18-->SUN MARCH 22 : AUSTIN, TX : SXSW (MORE DETAILS TBA ASAP)
FRI APRIL 3 : WASHINGTON, D.C. : 9:30 CLUB
SAT APRIL 4 : PHILADELPHIA, PA : JOHNNY BRENDA'S
THU APRIL 9 : NEW YORK, NY : BOWERY BALLROOM
FRI APRIL 10 : BROOKLYN, NY : MUSIC HALL OF WILLIAMSBURG
SAT APRIL 11 : BOSTON, MA : PARADISE
FRI APRIL 24 : ROCK ISLAND, IL : DAYTROTTER SESSION
SAT APRIL 25 : CHICAGO, IL : METRO
Why is everyone I want to see playing SXSW the year I decide to try and go to Coachella? Double sad face. :( :(
