Young Widows

Young Widows, Tournament, a bass-less (we'll explain) My Disco, and The Austerity Program played Europa on April 1st part of a trek that had YW scooting all over the US including down to SXSW to play the BV day party with The Bronx, Annhilation Time, Trash Talk, Garotas Suecas, and Psychedelic Horseshit.

My Disco also made it down to SXSW, as well as the Bell House, though not much further, it seems:

Hello,
Due to a theft that occurred at our show in Toronto over the weekend, we can no longer continue the rest of our tour dates in North America. I cannot re-enter the USA as a passport was taken in the theft. I am being sent home to the UK tomorrow night. Our apologies to those who have helped in organising these shows, and for those that were hoping to see us. A special thanks to Young Widows for inviting us to join them on this tour. All shows will continue, just without us. Please support these shows. Young Widows are an amazing band, and now close friends of ours. We thank them most of all...

Thanks, we're hopeful we will return in the fall.

Liam Andrews, Ben Andrews, Rohan Rebeiro.

That statement wasn't entirely true though, as My Disco ended up playing Europa as a duo, as evidenced in the pictures below....

The Austerity Program are gearing up to record a new EP, the follow-up to the caustic Black Madonna. The band is scheduled to tear the roof off of Union Pool on April 26th with Tournament and Wetnurse.

Tournament recently recorded their new full length Years Old due in May via Forcefield Records. Besides that calm and soothing night out with The Austerity Program and Wetnurse, the band will also make an appearance on WFMU's "Diane's Kamikaze Fun Machine" on April 23rd.

Wetnurse will team up with Genghis Tron, Tombs, and Black Anvil on April 12th (Easter, no less!) at Public Assembly for Show No Mercy. Blasphemers!

I love My Disco, they are some of the nicest guys in the world and don't deserve the bad luck they seem to attract while on tour. I organised their show in Auckland, New Zealand a few months ago and they sounded amazing.

As a side note; This is the second time Liam Andrews has had his passport stolen, it happened a few years ago while he was on his way to the airport in Melbourne to fly to Auckland for a show.

I think the pictures evidence that they played as a trio with the guy from Young Widows on bass. It would be cool if you WENT to the shows you report on.
