UMO at Glasslands in 2011 (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)
Psych poppers Unknown Mortal Orchestra, who were just announced on the lineup of the Great GoogaMooga, have also announced a short tour to take place this June in between their appearances at Sasquatch and NXNE. The tour is being supported by Doldrums and Vinyl Williams. It hits NYC on June 7 at Mercury Lounge and June 8 at Glasslands. Tickets for the Glasslands show are on sale now and tickets for the Mercury Lounge show go on sale Friday (4/27) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (4/25) at noon. UMO will also play Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago this July.
Speaking of Doldrums (aka Alrick Woodhead), you can catch him in NYC even sooner when he and Blouse support Bear in Heaven on their upcoming tour which hits NYC on May 8 at Bowery Ballroom and May 9 at MHOW. Tickets for both of those shows are still available.
