trail of Dead

... And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead headlined the Rhapsody Rocks event at The Mohawk in Austin on 3/19 joined by Joe Strummer look-alikes Glasvegas, School Of Seven Bells, Vivian Girls and Wavves. Between our day party, and Full Metal Texas with Kylesa & Black Math Horseman, it was a busy SXSW afternoon, so I was only able to catch a few minutes of Wavves and all of Trail of Dead, who were just amazing.

School of Seven Bells are scheduled to hit the road with Black Moth Super Rainbow, followed by a headlining show at Bowery Ballroom on June 12th (tickets here).

Glasvegas will be at MHOW on March 28th and Webster Hall on March 30th with Ida Maria. Both shows are sold out. Their "night off", March 29th, isn't a night off at all.... look for them on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Wavves plays three shows on the exact same three nights... Market Hotel on Mar 28th, Cake Shop on the 29th, and Merc on Mar 30th with DD/MM/YYY (tickets here).

Vivian Girls will be at Music Hall of Williamsburg on April 2nd opening for Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti.

Trail of Dead just played NYC right before Austin. More tour dates and Austin pictures (including shots with Jason Reece performing in the crowd), below...

It's probably a worse sign re: ToD's relevance that there are no haters on this thread.

Posted by Anonymous | March 26, 2009 11:13 PM

I dont think "wawvs" is correct :)

Psh - ToD tear off faces. Why the hate? I would've given my left testical to be there.

Posted by Media Ruckus | March 27, 2009 12:40 AM

I fucking hate the term "relevance". Relevant to who? Do you need someone to tell you what to listen to? Do you determine your music choices based on what everyone else is listening to? I thought that the reason to listen to indie music is to hear something different. Stop believing what the Pitchfork gods tell you is cool and forge your own path.
