The last time Montreal's Besnard Lakes were in town, they ended up being the only high profile band to actually play the day of Winter Storm Jonas. Hopefully snow drifts will not be an issue when the band play NYC again as part of a short East Coast tour this summer. Dates include two stops in NYC: Mercury Lounge on July 27 and Rough Trade on July 28. Tickets for Mercury Lounge and Rough Trade both shows go on sale Friday, May 6 at noon, with an AmEx presale for Rough Trade starting Wedensday (5/4) at noon.

The band, who released the terrific A Coliseum Complex Museum earlier this year, are currently playing a string of Midwest dates. All dates are listed below.
