Beach Slang

Cursive already announced that they're touring with a cellist in support of the reissue of 2003's great cello-filled The Ugly Organ, and pulling heavily from that era for the setlist, and now that tour just got even more exciting. One of 2014's best new bands, Beach Slang, will be opening on most dates, including both NYC shows. Those happen March 10 & 11 at Bowery Ballroom, and also include John Congleton's band The Nighty Nite. (John is fresh off a great 2014, producing albums for Angel Olsen, Cloud Nothings, Swans, St. Vincent and more.) Tickets for both NYC shows are still available.

Since we last spoke, that tour also added nearby dates at NJ's Asbury Lanes (3/8) and Long Island's Revolution Bar (3/13). Tickets for both are on sale.

Meanwhile, you can catch Beach Slang in NYC much sooner when they play the BrooklynVegan-curated Red Bull Sound Select show with Hop Along, Aye Nako and Ryley Walker at Baby's All Right on Tuesday (1/13). That's $3 at the door with RSVP or $10 without. No advance sales, and all door money is going to be donated to CancerCare.
