NYU's annual Strawbery Festival happened on May 4 in Washington Square Park and featured people dressed as strawberries, the world's longest strawberry shortcake and performances by Laura Stevenson & the Cans and Bomb the Music Industry (who at one point counted Laura Stevenson as a member). Pictures from the event are in this post.
Bomb the Music Industry play Europa TONIGHT (5/23) with Good Luck, Spoonboy and Swearin', and tickets are still available.
Meanwhile, BtMI's Jeff Rosenstock's other band, The Arrogant Sons of Bitches, have two shows coming up this week, both of which Laura Stevenson and the Cans will open: Saturday (5/26) at Webster Hall's Grand Ballroom (tickets still available) and Sunday (5/27) at Warsaw (sold out).
After that, Laura Stevenson and the Cans will continue to tour, culminating in a Brooklyn show on June 10 at Death by Audio with Iron Chic, Swearin, and Low Culture.
