Posted in music | tour dates on April 23, 2008


All signs, and weathervanes, point towards the upcoming outdoor summer concert season, which is just around the corner. The River to River Festival is kicking things off with a nod to the past, featuring Wire at the Seaport Music Festival stage. Why should you care? Unlike other 70s bands that have been over-saturating the concert circuit, these guys haven't taken a stage in the U.S. in quite some time; their last show was in Spain in 2004.........The show is free for all, and takes place Friday, May 30th at 7 p.m [Gothamist]
Other bands playing the South Street Seaport this summer are listed HERE.

Last year the Seaport booked Suicide. More Wire tour dates below...

their most recent EP from late last year was really really good, and not in a "good for a bunch of old dudes" way either.

No Bruce Gilbert, no credibility.

I don't think they would come all the way to NYC to play 1 free show. Last time I saw them they played the entire Pink Flag album. of the best shows ever!

@kwhitehead: are you kidding? You're giving waaay too much credit to Gilbert. Colin Newman has credibility in spades, baby.

If you seriously think Elastica is better/more important/etc., then you truly are just fucked in the head.
