A Classic Education
A Classic Education

As predicted, following this week's Best New Music review of Attack on Memory, tonight's Cloud Nothings' show at Studio @ Webster Hall with Bleeding Rainbow and Jump Into the Gospel, is now sold out. But the band just announced two NYC-area shows on the other side of SXSW, part of their tour with A Classic Education: March 27 at Mercury Lounge (also with The Denzels and Last Year's Men) (tickets on-sale Friday, 2/3) and March 28 at Glasslands (also with Crinkles) (on sale now). All Cloud Nothings/A Classic Education tour dates are at the bottom of this post.

This will be the first North American tour for A Classic Education since releasing their debut album, Call it Blazing, which was one of my favorites of 2011:

Heart on the sleeve tunes from Canadian Jonathan Clancy who formed this band in his current hometown of Bologna, Italy. Students of indiepop history, ACE take the best bits of the last 30 years and have created a sound all their own. Tuneful, continental and clever, with charm to spare.
Check out a couple tracks from the album at the top of this post, including single "Baby It's Fine" which has a stylish video you can watch below. Also below is live footage of Cloud Nothings performing "Wasted Days" at Glasslands back in November, as filmed for Pitchfork TV and the video for "No Future, No Past"...

He's playing 21+ shows, and he's not even 21 yet...?

This dude cannot sing and the new album is terrible (production is nice though).
