The New Pornographers SXSW "Together" shuttle (kelprecords)
New Pornographers

A quick gander and the snowfall-laden countdown to the May 4 release of 'Together' reveals you've got limited time to GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER (sorry) to place a pre-order for the 5th and arguably finest studio album from The New Pornographers. And not to apply undue pressure on a Spring Tuesday morning, but you'll have even less time to get it in gear unless you wanna be on the outside looking in when The New Pornographers roll into your town (sadly, on a bus besides this one) in a few weeks time. Tickets for the North America tour starting June 7 go on presale today (dates below). -Matador
The above pictured and referenced bus (aka the "Together Shuttle") was shuttling people (including Andrew Frisicano) from the Austin airport to the convention center and hotels during SXSW. Riders were treated to free drinks and "Together" playing over the sound system. One new song from that new album is available above for free.

And there's a tour. The New Pornographers will be on the road for most of June and July and a few dates before and after that. Most of that time will be spent with The Dodos, and some of the dates are with The Dutchess and The Duke (three bands total) including June 19th at Terminal 5 in NYC. As mentioned above, tickets are now on presale. Other dates are with Imaad Wasif (who goes on tour with Dead Meadow even sooner). All dates below...

Nice way to guarantee coverage and positive reviews, shuttle around the writers and photographers.

Ugh. i HATE Terminal 5. Looks like some open dates between NYC and Philly though. A possible Bell House show?

Posted by Anonymous | March 23, 2010 1:55 PM

fucking Terminal 5. I was hoping to avoid that place this year.

terminal 5? crap.

It has to be restated: I love NP but FUCK T5. Pass.

Posted by Anonymous | March 23, 2010 2:15 PM

will Neko and/or Dan be in attendance?

After seeing them with Dan at Webster Hall a couple of years ago... I don't know if I can see them without him. He's too good!

"will Neko and/or Dan be in attendance?"

Repeat of same string of comments last time New Pornos announced a tour.

MEXICO, BUS, T5, NP, BEJAR, WOOOO!!!

"Repeat of same string of comments last time New Pornos announced a tour."

That's because there is always the same big question, dumbass!

At least for the "Challengers" tour they announced up front that everyone would be there.

Awesome that Dutchess and the Duke is opening on some of the dates!

Posted by Anonymous | March 23, 2010 2:49 PM

re:Neko/Dan
They should at least let us know who's touring before putting the tix on sale. And yes, t5 sucks. Would much prefer a multi-night residency at Webster/Bowery.

Posted by Anonymous | March 23, 2010 3:16 PM

Neko and Dan will be taking part on the tour.

Posted by Anonymous | March 23, 2010 3:20 PM

3:20... did you just make that up or do you have a credible source for that info?

Posted by Anonymous | March 23, 2010 3:35 PM

It's true, Neko and Dan will definitely be on the tour

Posted by Anonymous | March 23, 2010 3:37 PM

No Chicago dates?? I bet that means they'll be at Lollapalooza.

Posted by Anonymous | March 23, 2010 3:51 PM

fuck lolla. they could be @ p4k on the 17th. i need me some neko!

Posted by Anonymous | March 23, 2010 4:32 PM

I heard that both Neko and AC where on that bus at SXSW as 'special guests' and that AC was a total asshole! Per the usual.

Posted by Anonymous | March 23, 2010 4:49 PM

I'd be shocked if Nico and Dan aren't there. They've always been on the tours directly following album releases -- it's the shows between that they usually aren't around for.

Posted by Anonymous | March 23, 2010 5:29 PM

4:49, neither Neko, nor AC were anywhere near that bus.

Posted by no one | March 23, 2010 5:32 PM

why do they search people at t5 and not at any other bp venue?

Total garbage per the usual for the idiots who comment on Brooklyn Vegan. Everyone is impressed that you stayed awake in English class one day and learned a fancy phrase though.

Won't Neko be on tour with Jakob Dylan during this NP tour?

Posted by Anonymous | March 24, 2010 7:44 PM

To answer my own question: Probably not, Jakob Dylan's NYC date is on April 21.

Check out their website. Says it will be the full 8 person lineup

The whole Snow LP is pretty solid. And these guys easily sold out 3 NYC shows already.

^^^Maybe these are scalpers upset about the T5 addition?

The tube is sharpened on the other end as a punch, with a pencil slid inside. My wallet contains a razor blade,a large needle and thread,
