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.
