Dwarves at Knitting Factory, 2011 (more by Harriet Roberts)
Blag Dahlia of the Dwarves (link NSFW) will be in NYC for two days in early September, neither of which will be with partners in crime HeWhoCannotBeNamed, Rex Everything, Whölley Smökkes and the less creatively monikered Greg Saenz. Blag is solo on this one, and you can catch him either at a DJ/spoken word event at Goodbye Blue Monday on 9/3 (1087 Broadway, Brooklyn) or at a FREE solo acoustic show at Bowery Electric on 9/4.
So far, more conventional Dwarves shows (if anyone could ever call them that) are few and far between: they play September 1 at Gothic Theater Englewood, CO, 9/2 at the 2000 Tons of TNT Festival in Hartford, CT (tickets) and Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin on 11/2-4. All known dates are listed at the bottom of this post.
In other obnoxious punk news, look for The Meatmen are on tour, including Europa on August 31 with Runny & Gentlemen and the previously mentioned 2000 Tons of TNT in Hartford. That festival will also house appearances from Anti-Nowhere League, Rival Mob, Negative Approach (who is scheduled to play Power Of The Riff East that same weekend) and more.
All tour dates are listed below, along with a Blag Dahlia live video.
