Ash celebrating 20th anniversary, released covers EP, touring (dates)
Veteran Irish trio Ash are celebrating their 20th Anniversary this year and are playing two NYC gigs as part of their year-long celebration: November 16 at Knitting Factory and November 20 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for the Bowery show go on AmEx presale Wednesday (9/5) at noon with the regular on-sale happening Friday (9/7) at noon; Knit tickets go on sale Saturday (9/8) at 10 AM.
While it's about two years since Tim Wheeler (who's only 35) and the band released original material, the band recently put out an EP of covers titled Little Infinity that finds them tackling songs by Abba, The Beatles, David Bowie and others. You can stream it at Spotify.
