These United States

These United States were listed as playing CMJ this year, but as I found out when I asked them to play one of my parties, that wasn't true. They did play two NYC shows a little less than a month before CMJ though, and they are playing one a little less than a month after. That show is tonight, Wednesday November 19th, in Knitting Factory's Tap Bar with Scotland Yard Gospel Choir, Mean Creek, and Morgan Grace. If you go, note that there's also a free Brown Bag All Stars show going on in the same club one floor down (and an Amanda Diva/Blitz the Ambassador/Che Grand show happening in the main space) (I'm gonna miss the option to see three separate shows in one venue in one night) (although the Lower East Side and Williamsburg are kind of like that since so many clubs are so close to each other) (and Williamsburg will have even one more option when Knitting Factory moves there). All TUS dates below...

These United States - 2008 Tour Dates
Nov 19 - @ Knitting Factory, w/ Scotland Yard Gospel Choir, Mean Creek NYC
Nov 20 - @ Brooklyn Cafe, w/ The Builders and the Butchers Waterbury, Connecticut
Nov 21 - @ Swarthmore College, w/ Bishop Allen, Electric Owls Swarthmore, Pennsylvania

Not to be confused with classic 60's psych-rock band The United States of America. Maybe the 2 bands should tour together - just to confuse us.

I'm fan of their live stuff, but not really their studio stuff. .

Not to be confused with classic 90's alt-rock band Presidents of the United States of America.

when you sleep in a van, don't do laundry, don't shower, and tour for 3 months - this is what you look like, right after an in-studio performance at an OH internet radio station sir

so they threw those clothes on and grew their hair and beards out and indie-credded themselves up after playing an internet-radio show? weird.

I read they played over 400 shows in the last couple years. I don't think the road skeeze is fake.
