These Arms Are Snakes @ Shea Stadium
The wildmen of These Arms Are Snakes were back at it on Friday 9/25 at Shea Stadium, when the band teamed up with Violent Bullshit (mems Panthers, Orchid, Black Army Jacket, Half Man, etc) and DD/MM/YY.
The Shea Stadium gig was one of two in NYC for the band. The second was Mercury Lounge the next day (9/27). How were they?
Unfortunately, due to circumstances completely out of our control, we have had to drop of of our tour with Thursday. Apologies to all but our attention is needed at home right now.All the best to the band.
A big thanks to the Thursday crew for taking us out and being extremely supportive of what we do; it means a lot.
You can look for us to make up the dates in the next 2 months with our friends Russian Circles. We'll also be playing a bunch of new material, so we hope to see you on the road.
All affected Thursday dates, with more pics of TAAS & Violent Bullshit from Shea Stadium (Chloe was at Santos shooting Rorschach reunion just before this show, so she missed DD/MM/YY and the other openers), below...
