Hold on to your seats Om fans, the band have announced a return to NYC to play an absolute jaw-dropper of a show. The trio have announced that they will play  a version of the track "At Giza" from their excellent Conference of the Birds LP in the most perfect of locations: in front of the remains of the Temple of Dendur at the Metropolitain Museum of Art on July 19!

The track, which is in reference to the great pyramids at Giza, will be modified for the setting and be accompanied by additional material when the band performs in front of the Egyptian ruins. Don't miss it, tickets are on sale.

The Temple of Dendur is also where Liars are performing on Saturday (sold out).

All  tour dates are listed, along with a stream of "At Giza" and the rest of Conference of the Birds, below.

aaaaand biggest idiot of the day award goes to 7:58, who literally knows nothing!

Rob Lowe i guess is sticking around as a more permanent member? Hes still listed as only a collaborator. This should be pretty amazing with his added improvisations.

Posted by tom | May 16, 2013 11:07 PM

Yeah, Lowe is in it to win it. Nicest guy in rock.

7:58 puts cucumbers in his pants like Derrick Smalls.
