No Joy @ Chicago's Lincoln Hall, May 2013 (more by James Richards IV)
We didn't figure No Joy would come down from Canada for Pitchfork's Basilica Sound Scape festival in September and not play at least a NYC show. It turns out, however, they've plotted a whole tour. That does indeed include an NYC show: Mercury Lounge on September 17. Tickets to that show go on sale Friday (8/2) at noon. All dates are listed below.
If you haven't checked out No Joy's latest album, Wait to Pleasure, yet it does a great job of blending the heavy and ethereal. You can stream it via Spotify.
Meanwhile, Basilica Festival (September 13-14) has announced it's full line-up which includes additions like Julianna Barwick, Teengirl Fantasy, Malang Djobateh, artist Genevieve White, and a reading from Peter Sotos. Tickets are still available and you can check out the full line-up below.
No Joy tour dates are listed, along with Basilica Sound Scape flyer and line-up, below...
