Strange Boys

The Strange Boys were in LA to play a FYF Fan Appreciation Show on May 8th. They also fit in a warm-up set at a Hollywood Hills house party the night before. They were joined by LA band Woah Hunx (amazingly, no relation to Hunx & His Punx). The bands played in what looks likes someone's living room (with détourned version Renoir's Le Déjeuner des canotiers on display) to a crowd that included a Vivian Girl, Nathan WAVVES and our BV-LA photographer Rachel Carr. Her pictures are in this post.

The Strange Boys will be in Toronto for a slew of NXNE shows - including one with the JEFF/Quintron & Miss Pussycat tour, and three nights in a row at Toronto venue the Silver Dollar. The first of those nights, June 17th, includes a set by the Bitters and a "special guest" who is probably WAVVES (who, like Best Coast, also has a bunch of NXNE shows that are announced).

After that, the Strange Boys straight to Europe for a long string of shows that'll take them through July. In September they join Those Darlins and Gentleman Jesse for a US tour that includes the previously mentioned show at Bowery Ballroom which is still on sale. Woah Hunx stay busy with shows along the West Coast. All tour dates and more pictures from the Hollywood show are below...

This post is basically TMZ. And the people in it just as vapid.

the strange boys are one of the best bands I've seen all year. They rule.

TMZ publishes tour dates, and non-celebrity pictures?
