SLGTM

Michigan indie poppers Saturday Looks Good to Me, led by main songwriter Fred Thomas, are set to kick off their first tour since Fred ended the project back in 2008. The tour kicks off next month with support from Wild Moccasins. That tour includes a Brooklyn show happening on May 18 at Knitting Factory with Cola Jet Set, Orca Team, and Catnaps. Tickets are on sale now for the show which is part of NYC Popfest. All dates are listed below.

SLGTM reissued their 2003 album, All Your Summer Songs, on 180-gram white vinyl for Record Store Day via Polyvinyl. Did you pick one of those up? If not, you can try your luck bidding on one on eBay. Fred is also promising a new SLGTM album due out this fall. Meanwhile, Polyvinyl have assembled a playlist of the band's work, which you can stream below.

All dates and playlist stream below...

Is this the new cast of Freaks and Geeks?

Saturday Looks Good to Me are the real deal. Just because you trend hopping sacks of shit haven't heard them on your favorite Urban Outfitters comp doesn't mean it isn't good.

or, 3:59, are they back because freddy's lame attempt at trend hopping failed?

either way, they'll go away with a whimper again.

If you check out the bottom of this band's crazy long bio there is a link in it that says "black pussy" and actually goes to porn. Awesome!

The negativity in these comments makes me sad. For my money there wasn't a better (or more under-appreciated) indie pop band than SLGTM in the early-to-mid oughts, and the fact that they're getting back together to tour and possibly release a new album should make any fan of good music rejoice, regardless of what your thoughts on Fred's other musical endeavors might be. I just wish they were coming out to the west coast...
