Forward Russia
* photo by Simon Leak

The UK's Forward Russia! are coming back to NYC TWICE in November - first on the 2nd to play Mercury Lounge during CMJ, and then on the 28th to headline the bigger Bowery Ballroom. The Mercury Lounge show is part of a small U.S. tour that ends right before they go back to the UK to join Wolfmother on the "MTV2 Spanking New Music Tour". There probably won't be any advanced tickets for the CMJ show that also features The Fever and Archie Bronson Outfit, but tickets did just go on sale for the Bowery show. All dates below...

The Forward Russia Mercury show is the same night as the Shins show at Bowery.... I'd love to go to either one, but if tickets aren't going to go on sale to the public for either then I consider this an unfair tease. Unfair!

i got tickets for the cmj show for the Knife and then they added a 2nd late show and they were kind enough to refund tickets.

i didn't know CMJ did that for some shows. so only people who pay a shitload of money to register can go?

no, they sell tickets at the door.

Last year all of the shows at Bowery went on sale at Ticketweb, but you had to buy Mercury at the door.
