THESE ARE POWERS, the Brooklyn/Chicago based trio of future primitives have announced plans for a United States tour. The dates include select performances with Abe Vigoda, Bird Names and US Girls, and begin February 25 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, wrapping up on March 27 in Richmond, Virginia. Touring in support of All Aboard Future, available for pre-order from Dead Oceans on CD and LP. The vinyl is 180 grams, housed in a gatefold sleeve and includes a coupon to download the songs as MP3s. We would also like to extend an apology to Sarah Wilmer, whose gorgeous photograph was not credited on the LP.These are Powers played their first of six NYC shows in a month last Friday (1/23). It was at The Bell House in Brooklyn with Ponytail and Pattern is Movement.
Their next NYC show is tonight, Friday January 30th, with Dan Deacon and friends AT The 1896 (NOT AT DANBRO). They also have shows coming up at the recently-almost-burned-down Monster Island, Manhattan's Less Artists More Condos, the record store Other Music, 92Y Tribeca, and many other places across the country. All dates and more pictures from last week's show, below...
