JAMC at Webster Hall (more here)
Its been five years since the brothers Reid have made their way around the US as The Jesus & Mary Chain. Now it looks like the band will be back on our shores to play a select set of dates in and around SXSW including the 35 Denton Festival. “Underpinning the Reid brothers’ three-chord assault on these 2012 dates will be (sometimes drummer and guitarist from Pyschocandy line up) John Moore on guitar, Phil King on bass and a drummer to be announced.” Full tour dates, which do not currently include NYC, are listed below. It’s unclear if any more will be added.
The J&MC shows are in celebration of the band’s upcoming slate of reissues which include additional bonus tracks and bonus DVD content. Head to the band’s site for more info.
35 Denton also recently announced Atlas Sound and many more bands on its lineup.
