Smith Westerns

The Smith Westerns played Knitting Factory on March 5, two days after a show at Mercury Lounge, and their last public stop on a pre-SXSW tour. But they’re not headed off to Austin just yet. FIRST, a visit to a… department store….

After SXSW, they’ll take a break before returning to NYC to play March 25th at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets are still on sale. From there they stay busy on the road with bands like Wilco and Yeasayer. All dates are below.

The Knitting Factory show was with Unknown Mortal Orchestra who Shanda says “ripped it with their heavy-guitar sound and catchy vocals.” These pictures are from that show…
