The Night Wears A Sombrero 2012

Ten bands, no singers. The Night Wears A Sombrero festival ( returns on July 1, with ten incredible bands at Littlefield in Brooklyn. Curated by local math-rockers Zvoov, the festival is a showcase of the best in instrumental rock from New York and elsewhere, with a focus on math, experimental, and post-rock. Taking place at the Littlefield performance and art space in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn (622 Degraw Street), the show will begin at 2 PM and run until 1 AM. Littlefield is a short walk from the Union Street subway stop and the shops and restaurants of Park Slope. Tickets are on sale now at $12 for advance purchase or $14 on the day of the show. Show is 18+.

Summer Tour

We'll be touring for 5 weeks to the West Coast and back in July and August to support our upcoming LP. Here's roughly the route we'll be taking (leaving off a bunch of the California dates and the off-day trips as Google Maps only allows 25 driving destinations on a map):

New Drummer

We just started playing with a new drummer, one John Swank. We're pretty excited about it and can't wait to play with him live and get some of our new material out into the open. Once we're up to speed (perhaps a month or two), we'll start booking shows again. The plan is to record a full length next year and tour somewhat extensively to support it.

Also, our show last night (likely our last ever with Sal on drums) with Signal Hill, Calls, and Twincities was downright spectacular. Best energy of any show we've yet played. Thanks everyone for making it a great time.

Tour Canceled; Shows with Hannibal Montana, Vasudeva, Signal Hill and Calls

We ended up having to cancel our tour - apparently trying to book 14 dates less than 2 months in advance is not the best of ideas. We learned a lot (the biggest thing being we can't wait to outsource this stuff), and we'll be on the road soon enough.

Going on Tour + Night Wears a Sombrero Festival

We're starting to practice with our new drummer Butch, and we have some exciting news.

First, we're going on tour through the Middle West and Canada. We're playing in St. Paul at the Turf Club Friday August 19, and we'll be touring from New York to there and back. Our likely route is: Washington DC, Pittsburgh, Chicago, St. Paul, Madison, Milwaukee, Detroit, Toronto, Montreal, Boston. We have to actually get everything set up though so some of that may change.

We're happy to announce we'll be playing the ABC No Rio COMA Series on May 8! We also have a show April 27 at the Trash Bar, and we'll be playing the FredRock Festival April 23 in Maryland. More info here.
