Grimes @ Fun Fun Fun Fest
Grimes is still out on dates with Austra post-Fun Fun Fun Fest, but the Canadian and her uber-talented stage-dancer (see video below) have already mapped out their return to NYC as part of a string of shows with Born Gold who were also ridiculous amounts of fun at one of our CMJ day parties. This is definitely a double bill I'll want to be checking out.
Look for the pair to hit Mercury Lounge on March 23rd, 2012 and Glasslands in Brooklyn on March 24th. Tickets for Mercury go on AMEX presale at noon on 11/16 with regular sale hitting on Friday, while Glasslands tickets are on sale now. The shows are two of at least three dates scheduled for the pair, who will also play Allston, MA a few days later. Is this part of a larger tour? Probably. Details are forthcoming.
All known dates, more Fun Fun Fun pictures and some videos (including Born Gold's new one for "Lawn Knives"), below...
