Alt-J at Mercury Lounge in May (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Alt-J

Just after we posted belated pics of UK four-piece Alt-J's Mercury Lounge show from this past May with We Are Serenades, a full North American tour surrounding the US release of their debut album, An Awesome Wave, was announced which includes a NYC show on September 12 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (7/27) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (7/25) at noon. The new tour happens after their short run of US dates next month, which includes two sold out NYC shows: Mercury Lounge on August 6 and Glasslands on August 7.

A list of all dates and the video for "Tessellate" (not a Tokyo Police Club cover) are below...
