Cincinnati poppy punks Vacation were already announced as one of the bands playing the Don Giovanni Brooklyn showcases, and since we last spoke they've announced a full tour surrounding that show. The tour includes another NYC show happening a few days after the Don Giovanni show on February 10 at Cake Shop with Flykills. All upcoming dates are listed below.
Vacation play the first night of the Don Giovanni showcases, which happens at Death by Audio on 2/6 with Tenement, Night Birds, Nuclear Santa Claust and The Groucho Marxists (tickets). The other two nights happen at MHOW on 2/7 & 2/8 with Screaming Females, Laura Stevenson, Nude Beach, California X, Priests and more (tickets).
Speaking of Screaming Females, they're also about to record a live album in Chicago that Steve Albini is recording, and after that they're heading out on a tour with The Julie Ruin. That tour doesn't hit NYC but it will be nearby when it hits Asbury Lanes on April 12 in Asbury Park, NJ. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
