Archers of Loaf

"In many ways, Archers of Loaf are a lot like their Sasquatch billmates Guided By Voices: a canonical indie band long out of commission, whose hooky guitar rock has only grown more beloved in the years they've been away. Lead man Eric Bachmann has kept busy since the Archers hung it up in 1998, releasing records under his own name and as Crooked Fingers. But for fans who thought they'd never hear "Web In Front" live again, the band's current string of reunion dates is a welcome surprise." [listen at NPR]
Archers of Loaf played Sasquatch on Sunday. Pictures are in this post. NPR has the stream. Their upcoming dates include LA shows on June 3rd & 4th with the Globes (who played Sasquatch Saturday), and NYC shows on June 25th & 26th with Mr. Dream. The Music Hall of Williamsburg show is sold out, but tickets are still on sale for Webster Hall. An updated set of tour dates, and more pics from Washington, below...

Anyone think the Crooked Fingers gig at Maxwell's is a secret Archers of Loaf gig? Past examples would be Tim Kinsella/Cap'n Jazz? Just sayin...

It's not a secret Archers Of Loaf show. Eric is just doing some Crooked Fingers shows on his way to the next Archers shows.
