TVOTR playing SXSW & touring, Dead Milkmen playing MWTX
TV on The Radio at Roots Picnic 2009 (more by Tim Griffin)
Tickets are still available for TV On The Radio‘s date with Radio City Music Hall on 4/13, and since we last spoke the band announce many more tour dates. They kick things off on 4/8 in Philly and all dates are listed below.
Those heading to Austin this month don’t need to wait as long. Spin has announced their annual SXSW party (that Hole played last year) and the lineup includes TV on the Radio, The Kills, OMD, The Vaccines, OFF!, and the Smith Westerns on the main stage, with MNDR, Young the Giant, Dom, Electric Child, and 28 North holding down the indoor stage. Skrillex, Wolfgang Gartner, Designer Drugs, and Anika man the 1’s and 2’s. It happens 12:30 – 6PM at Stubb’s on Friday, 3/18 (about a block away from the TBA BrooklynVegan party happening that day – stay tuned!)
OFF! probably wont be off too much during SXSW. The Keith Morris-led band, in addition to the Spin party, the Pitchfork #OFFLINE party, and an official showcase, are also playing other shows including the just-announced MWTX fest (formerly Mess With Texas)! The free show goes down on 3/19 at The East Side Drive Inn (where Pitchfork’s #OFFLINE festival will be the two days prior) and will feature appearances from The Dead Milkmen, Odd Future, !!!, Surfer Blood, The Dodos, Deer Tick, and many others. The full lineup so far is below. (and there’s also BrooklynVegan parties this day, but MWTX runs much later, so you can do both!) (stay tuned for more about that).
This now makes three shows total for the Dead Milkmen who also have shows coming up in Brooklyn and Chicago.
All TVOTR tour dates, the MWTX lineup (thus far) and the flyer is below.
