Here We Go Magic
Here We Go Magic

Close to a year ago, Here We Go Magic presented themselves as a newly formed quintet, a group constructed around the layered songwriting and folk sensibilities of musician Luke Temple. While the band had a strong head start with Temple's solo album, the eponymous Here We Go Magic, when they arrived at Music Hall of Williamsburg in January to play a headlining gig, the audience's expectations derived solely from the album's representation of a collective sound. Now, after extensively touring behind Here We Go Magic's second album, Pigeons (though it is technically their first as a fully realized band), their listeners are familiar with the cast rather than just the director. And, on Wednesday night at The Bowery Ballroom, Temple and Co. returned to New York City with an expanded collection of songs and a reformed sense of self. [Playtonic Dialogues]
Here We Go Magic played Bowery Ballroom on Wednesday, 10/13, with The Love Language and Delicate Steve, their lone East Coast headlining date before heading across the country to meet up with Dr. Dog (who play T5 on 2/18 - tickets on sale NOW). HWGM will also team up with Broken Social Scene for a trio of Canadian dates in December. Full tour dates are below.

The Love Language have no NYC dates in the near future, though they also played Maxwell's last night and you can catch them at Toad's Place in CT tonight (10/15). The Raleigh band will skip around the East Coast in the coming weeks, including a couple of dates with Jenny & Johnny who play NYC on 10/19 as part of CMJ with the now-updated lineup of La Sera, Happy Birthday, Times New Viking, and Wild Nothing (but not the Love Language). Tickets are still on sale or you can try to get in with your CMJ badge. .
