Smith Westerns

...been meaning to catch the smith westerns for some time now and friends they didn't disappoint. their breezy kinda rock was the perfect way to welcome in spring to new york. playing a set under an hour, a sold out crowd left a little disappointed that the smith westerns glassed over an encore. despite that, the infectious tune "weekend" is stuck in my head the morning after.-[sharocks the blogspot]
Smith Westerns played Bowery Ballroom on Monday evening, as part of a larger set of dates with Unknown Mortal Orchestra that concludes on Saturday in Atlanta. From there, the Smith Westerns will continue on the road eventually ending up at Sasquatch Fest in the Pacific Northwest.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra also played their own show at Pianos on Sunday, and a late one with Bass Drum of Death on Saturday night at Shea Stadium while they were in NYC. After they finish their tour with the Smith Westerns, they'll prep for another tour, this time with Portugal. The Man and Telekinesis. That tour hits Webster Hall on 6/3 (tickets are still on sale).

All tour dates and more pictures from Bowery Ballroom are below....

such a fucking dumb band.

I like their record. Sure they're copping off of a number of older and better bands, but they're doing it right. Give the kids a break.
