DOWNLOAD: Throw Me The Statue - Ancestors (MP3)

Bishop Allen @ Sasquatch Fest in June (more by Chris Graham)
Bishop Allen

"The new songs are a glorious mess right now," [Bishop Allen] frontman Justin Rice admits to Spinner. "There are bits and pieces strung together, exquisite corpse-style: donkey heads on snake bodies with chicken feet. It's a great time because I can feel the potential in everything we're working on. Nothing's let me down yet by turning out ugly or tamer than I'd hoped."
Bishop Allen's latest record, Grrr..., came out in early 2009. They have plans to record the follow-up later this year, but not before heading out on tour this fall. The trip kicks off in Boston on October 27th, but doesn't swing around to NYC until its finale, when they play Union Hall on November 20th and the Bell House on Nov. 21st. Tickets for the Bell House are on sale - tickets for the much smaller Union Hall aren't.

Opening both shows, and the entire tour, are catchy Seattle indie-poppers Throw Me the Statue (whose new LP, Creaturesque, came out in August - an MP3 from it is above) and Darwin Deez, an affable NYC quartet who sometimes break out into on-stage synchronized dance routines (video below). Darwin Deez is also appearing at a number of official and unofficial CMJ showcases. Those and all other tour dates are posted below...
