2:54 at BV SXSW earlier this month (more by Amanda Hatfield)

UK band 2:54, who were just in the US for two NYC shows and SXSW where they played the official BrooklynVegan showcase, are about to kick off a tour on their home continent, but they'll be returning to our side of the Atlantic this June. So far, only a few North American shows have been announced, and one of those is a NYC show which happens on June 11 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets are on AmEx presale now and go on sale to the general public on Friday (3/30) at noon. No opener for this show has been announced yet but Widowspeak is listed as an opener for some of the other US shows and is opening at Mercury Lounge too.

This too has nothing to do with Linsanity. I am beginning to get discouraged that Linsanity will ever be covered on this site.

Anybody who likes 2:54 but hasn't heard the 90s UK band Curve, do yourself a favor and reach back for the real thing...not this current weak imitation.

I'm not sure if this is relevant, but it takes me exactly 2 minutes and 54 seconds to finish a sabra container off.

saw the last show at mercury lounge due to getting taken there by a friend. was open minded.. it's funny how these uk bands get tons of buzz when they just sound like high school bands.

Um... Widowspeak is opening? What?! That's some serious bullshit. These girls only have 1 EP out. Shouldn't someone less accomplished open instead? Geez, just because they signed to Fat Possum. There's no justice in the music world.
