Shopping touring in August with Gauche (members of Priests, Downtown Boys & more)
UK band Shopping, who make scratchy, minimal post-punk that cooly recalls such acts as Delta 5 or Joseph K (and who were one of the hits of CMJ 2015), will be back in North America this summer for a short tour as they head to LA’s Berserktown III. They’ll play Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right on August 3 and tickets are on sale now. Stream their album Consumer Complaints as well, below.
UPDATE: Shopping added a second NYC show at Silent Barn on August 8 with Yucky Duster, Fits, and Boys Online. Tickets for that show are on sale.
Most of their tour is is with Washington, DC’s Gauche, which features members of Priests, Downtown Boys, Neonates, HotHead, and Flamers. They put out a tape last year which you can stream below. This should make for a good double bill. All dates are listed below.
