Proto punks Death reportedly did well at Fun Fun Fun Fest, and now the band is turning those positive vibes in to more shows, or more specifically, a NYC show. Tickets are on sale for Death with Rough Francis (they share members) at Europa in Brooklyn on April 2nd.

Death are also set to play an official SXSW showcase at the Mohawk in Austin on Saturday, March 20th. More dates TBA.

Death's only NYC reunion show so far was a short appearance at the 2009 Joey Ramone Birthday bash. The 2010 version of that show happens May 19th at Irving Plaza.
