Young Magic @ Webster Hall, Jan. 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Young Magic, who not too long ago wrapped up a tour opening for Purity Ring, are hopefully busy working on a follow-up to last year's Melt. In the meantime, the Australian expats who now call Brooklyn their home have a few local dates lined up. They'll play Mercury Lounge on April 9. That show is with "Special Guests TBA," and a "Reverberation DJ set." Tickets go on sale Friday at noon. The band are also playing Ran Tea House on April 19 and, after a trip to Austin Psych Fest, play Brooklyn Museum on May 4.
Back to the Mercury Lounge show. We're not sure what "Special Guests TBA" is but Reverberation is the name of Allah-Las weekly online radio show (the most recent webcast is streamable below) and this show falls smack-dab inbetween Allah-Las' dates with The Black Angels and Elephant Stone at Webster Hall on April 8 (tickets) and The Bell House on April 10 (tickets). We were wondering if Allah-Las might play a show on their own while here. It looks like they'll be DJing but... hmm.
All Young Magic tour dates are below.
Reverberation Radio #54
