We love the British trio Saint Etienne, having written about them a few times.
It's hard to believe that it's been six years since the band was in the USA. The good news is that they are doing just a handful of US dates in support of their new album, Words and Music by Saint Etienne. Unfortunately, it might be a while before I see the beautiful Sarah Cracknell since they're not playing anywhere near me.
Words and Music by Saint Etienne will come in standard and double-disc deluxe set from Universal Music Enterprises.
10/25 Washington, DC - U Street Music Hall
10/26 New York, NY - Webster Hall
10/27 Boston, MA - Paradise
10/29 Chicago, IL - Lincoln Hall
10/31 Portland, OR - Wonder Ballroom
11/01 Seattle, WA - The Showbox
11/02 San Francisco, CA - The Fillmore
11/03 Los Angeles, CA - Fonda Theatre
Just a reminder that Canadian electropop trio, Dragonette, will be heading out on tour this week (tomorrow!) in support of their third studio album, Bodyparts (the album is coming out September 25th).
If you missed Dragonette's "Let It Go" on Good Morning America, you can see them on abcnews.go.com.
UPDATE: I am a big cover lover of cover artwork, and I love Dragonette's album art for Bodyparts. I couldn't help but poke a little fun at it with a new vuart.
Hopefully, if it all works out, we'll be covering the band at the Minneapolis date. All dates with (*) are with The Knocks, a band that doesn't seem to have a website.
