Chickfactor #17 with Grass Widow on the cover
Despite Hurricane Sandy playing havoc with area airports, San Francisco trio Grass Widow are here and kick off an Easterly North American tour tonight (11/2) in NYC at 285 Kent with Royal Baths and Habibi also on the bill. $10 gets you in at the door. The band were last here for the Northside fest back in June. All tour dates are listed below.
Meanwhile, Grass Widow are the cover stars for all-lower-case "legendary indie nerd bible" chickfactor's first new issue in over ten years. The issue will also features interviews with Sharon Van Etten, Black Tamborine, Frankie Rose, and many more. You can pre-order the issue via Kickstarter now and get cool extras if you care to pledge extra, or just pick it up at Other Music or other locations when it comes out later this year.
Grass Widow also recently recorded a Daytrotter session which you can listen to here and their new album, Internal Logic, is highly recommended too. You can watch the video for the album's "Goldilocks Zone" below.
