Wilkes-Barre, PA’s noise/synth/screamo spazzes An Albatross had been on hiatus for a few years, but returned to the stage this past fall for a Philly show with Daughters. They’ll play another Philly show this Friday (1/20) at The Barbary with The Dead Milkmen, which is an inauguration protest show and also a Planned Parenthood benefit (and sold out). Here’s what An Albatross wrote:
Donald Trump will be inaugurated on January 20th, 2017. American democracy, civil liberties, safety & peace for our brothers & sisters of color, women, LGBT community & immigrants of all ethnicities will be at stake. As a measure of love & solidarity, which is a pillar of the punk rock underground, Philadelphia legends, The Dead Milkmen and avant-garde noise rockers, An Albatross, will be paired perform one night only at The Barbary, benefitting Planned Parenthood. Get active, get into it, get involved!
An Albatross now added a NYC show for March 3 at Saint Vitus with special guests (which appears to be their first time here since Cake Shop in 2010). Tickets for Vitus go on sale Friday (1/20) at 10 AM.
No other dates announced yet but stay tuned. Meanwhile, stream 2003’s We Are the Lazer Viking:
