Don't forget that Fountains of Wayne and Nada Surf (Matthew and Ira acoustic) play a benefit for Kelly Buchanan at Knitting Factory in NY this Wednesday night. Also,
New US tour dates have just been added and include Nada Surf's first show ever in Mexico. Joining the band on most of the dates will be the excellent Delta Spirit and our friends the Jealous Girlfriends. Most of the shows go on sale on Sept 12th.Tickets for December Nada Surf / Delta Spirit shows at Bowery Ballroom (Dec 6) and Webster Hall (Dec 7) go on sale Friday (like they said). No word yet on tickets for a show at Maxwell's (Dec 8).
Nicole Atkins is putting out a digital rlse, covers album that includes a version of "Inside of Love." Go to her myspace site for more info.
While on tour last spring, the music/cooking site Cooking with Rockstars recorded a segment with Nada Surf at our friend Jo's house. It's up and you can check it out.
Delta Spirit are currently on tour with Dr. Dog and will also play NYC during CMJ in October.
Nada Surf (the acoustic duo version) is also playing a show for kids at The Living Room on Novmeber 9th. Daniel is currently on the sidelines due to an injury (he didn't play Bumbershoot), but he should be all better and back in the band by the time they play their next full band shows. All dates and a letter from Daniel below....
hello friends, daniel hereNada Surf - 2008 Tour Dates
i'm very sad to announce that i won't be able to play this next batch of US shows with matthew and ira. i've hurt my knee and the doctors say i have to stay off my feet as much as possible for the next two weeks, or risk permanent damage.
in the 14+ years that the three of us have been playing together, we have only ever been forced to cancel 2 shows.
although it breaks my heart to miss not just the DNC in denver, but also the shows on the west coast, all of them in cities i hold dear, i at least have the consolation that the tour will not be cancelled thanks to our old friend jose galvez from ozma, who has kindly agreed to fill in for me. we met jose when ozma came to visit us while recording the proximity effect ten years ago, and we have been friends ever since. he is a fantastic musician and an even nicer person, so please make him feel at home.
thanks for all your support, and for making what we do possible.
love, d (Aug 27, 2008)
