Night Beats at MHOW, April 2012 (more by Joe McCabe)
Seattle's garagey Night Beats are currently on tour with Black Angels, which rolls into Chicago tonight (8/3) at Double Door which is one of the many official Lollapalooza afterparties. While this fuzzed-out double feature doesn't hit NYC, Night Beats will be here on Monday, August 6, headlining Knitting Factory. The show is with K-Holes and Mmoss. Tickets are still available. We're also giving away a pair of tickets to this show and details on how to enter are at the bottom of this post.
The tour with Black Angels wraps up Aug 11 in Little Rock, AR but Night Beats will continue on through the South West, including a free Psych Fest/Sailor Jerry show in Austin at Red 7 on August 15 with co-headliners The UFO Club (aka Christian Bland from Black Angels and Lee Blackwell from Night Beats), Fungi Girls, Cheap Curls and Holy Wave. Austin folk can RSVP for that here.
UFO Club are releasing their self titled debut LP on August 13 (preorder), the followup to last year's split with Night Beats. You can check out cover art, tracklist, a stream of album track "July," and a live video of album track "John the Cat" in this post.
