Islands – New Years Eve, Elvis Perkins, WIN, 2009 Tour Dates
3 noteworthy notes to notefully note.
1) Spain dates have been added to the February tour. 21st in Barcelona, 22nd in Madrid. The Paris date has also been filled in, and if i’m not misunderstood, it’s going to be a free show. Probably want to RSVP to that on the early side.
2) We’re supporting Blonde Redhead on New Year’s Eve in New York City at Terminal 5. This will be fun. Party horns, noise makers, and a lot of fake-out countdowns. [Elvis Perkins was also added to this bill].
3) I, Nick Thorburn/Diamonds am curating a show in New York City, my adoptive home, at the Knitting Factory on Monday, December 8th. All proceeds go to New York Cares, a local charitable organization that supports underprivelaged communities, the homeless and various social and welfare services. David Cross, Fred Armisen, Marnie Stern, Conrad Keely from Trail of Dead, Despot, yours truly, and a couple of other surprises are all on the table. It will be a jam-packed evening, and it’s for a good cause.
