The continually excellent Kid Canaveral (who had two entries in my annual Festive Fifty at the end of last year and were no.5 in my end of year album chart) are shortly heading off to the US for SXSW (South by South West, do keep up).
They are playing two fundraiser gigs in Scotland before heading off; these are:
24th February at Stereo, Glasgow with support from Randolph’s Leap and Martin John Henry
26th February at The Wee Red Bar, Edinburgh with The Last Battle and Blue Sky Archives.
So far six dates have been announced in the US, these are:
12th March at Bruar Falls, NYC w/Rachel Sermanni
13th March at Fontana’s, NYC
14th March at The Cake Shop, NYC
16th March at Maggie Mae’s, Austin, TX (Official SXSW showcase)
18th March at Red House Pizzeria, Austin, TX (Music For Listeners daytime party)
19th March at Waterloo Cycles, Austin, TX (SXSWaterloo daytime party)
It’s actually genuinely exciting to see people that you know and have supported through your own blog heading off to the US.
It’s also great that they have asked 17 Seconds Records’ Last Battle to support them again. i saw The Last Battle live in Edinburgh last night, playing a lot of new stuff, so get along and see the edinburgh gig! Act quickly, tickets are selling fast…
Meanwhile, this is the video that kid Canaveral have made for their ‘You Only Went Out To Get Drunk Last Night’ single. It is awesome…
