Braids at Bowery Ballroom in April (more by Toby Tenenbaum)
Braids

Braids play NXNE this weekend with Jennifer Castle, Chad Vangaalen, Grimes, Duzheknew and many others. They'll then spend most of the summer touring their home country of Canada and Europe. In September and October they'll embark on a massive tour of North America with Pepper Rabbit (who are currently on the road with Givers). All dates are listed below.

The Braids fall officially tour begins in NYC on September 6 at Mercury Lounge which is one of the only dates on the tour not listing Pepper Rabbit on the bill (maybe that will change after Thursday's Bowery Ballroom show). Mercury Lounge tickets go on sale Friday (6/17) at noon.

All tour dates and a recently released live video, below...

sweet. I saw them open for Toro Y Moi a few months ago and I was really impressed. Totally looking forward to this show!

Yeah these guys are really good, they deserve to make a splash.

First to say it (and good reason to with the EP coming out). God, I hope Braid comes around these parts! The new EP is excellent!

I don't know. Is it just me or does their tour schedule seem sort of light.

Not.

I was hoping that they could get The Led Zeppelins to open, but this'll do.

Braids are sick! Glad I saw 'em headline Glasslands in Jan. And will surely see 'em in Sept! Native Speaker is one of the best albums in '11.
