Peter Bjorn & John @ Antone's
Peter, Bjorn, and John

Peter, Bjorn & John recently announced a tour with six local dates in September, but the September 14 show at Highline Ballroom is actually not happening (they were considering it and accidentally announced it, but it is 100% cancelled). That's ok though because there are still more than enough chances to see the band. Tickets are still available for MHOW and Bowery, Maxwell's, and Brooklyn Bowl. The Mercury show is sold out. Updated tour dates are listed below.

PB&J just finished the second leg of their April, May & June North American tour. The first leg hit Music Hall of Williamsburg and Bowery Ballroom twice, and according to a tour laminate, included a "Columbia Records Private Show." The second leg hit Antone's in Austin on June 1st. Pictures from that Texas show are in this post.

Oax opened the Austin show. Oax is the solo project of Giorgi Angelini. Giorgi has played bass in The Rosebuds and Bishop Allen, and previously sang in the band 1986 with Cully Symington, currently of Okkervil River (who play tonight). Oax releases a 5-song EP today (6/7). According to his facebook:

"The record was recorded by Giorgio Angelini in his home studio with the co-production help of Ivan Rosebud (The Rosebuds). The EP features guest performances by Jim Eno of Spoon and Chris Simpson (Mineral, Gloria Record). It's a hot one....and not like that Matchbox-20/Santana joint."
The Rosebuds release their new album, Loud Planes Fly Low, today too! They leave on tour on June 10th and will open for Bon Iver on a lot of dates. Oax open for the Rosebuds in Texas on June 23rd, 24th & 25th.
