Florida in the Midwest

I'm spending the next two weeks helping out my friend Dan's band from Brooklyn called Florida with a tour through the midwest. The tour is to support their new 7" on Shdwply records called "Haunted House." I did a small tour with them over the summer for their "Icarus" 7".

Here is a link to download the new 7"

All of the shows are with the Minneapolis psych pop band Velvet Davenport. The tour starts tonight in Chicago, then heads east for a couple shows in New York and one in Philly before swinging back around and finishing up with a final show in Minneapolis with Harry Merry from Holland.

I set up the philly show at Danger Danger Gallery, which my other band, The Spooks, will also play. I also asked Nymph from Brooklyn and Philly's Ideath(Russell from Man Man, Buffalo Stance, Columboid, Icy Demons, Coyote, Lewis & Clarke, etc...) to play. It should be an awesome night, here is the flier that a friend of mine named Dan Hughes put together.

Last week before the tour started we went up to Vassar College in Poughkeepsie NY to do a show with Sore Eros and Teeth Mountain. Before the show we did a live set on the Vassar radio station, WVKR. Listen to the session here.

It's pretty exciting to be on the road with these rad bands but I am looking forward to getting home and sleeping in my bed again. Not to mention getting back to work on the next issue of flavs, which will hopefully be ready by april.
