"What about FOREIGN BORN-Person to Person!!!" - JarretP

Foreign Born
Foreign Born

L.A. band Foreign Born will be taking Philly DFA party rockers Free Energy on tour with them this February and March. The bands roll into NYC for two shows, the first of which is March 11th at Mercury Lounge. Tickets are on sale. The second is the next night (3/12) at Knitting Factory. Tickets for that are up too.

Foreign Born's latest album, Person to Person, came out over the summer (two tracks from it are reposted above). Their new, vacationy/mock-adventure video for the summery song "Early Warnings" (it's always summer in L.A. I suppose) is posted below.

Before the tour, Free Energy will be playing other shows around NYC. They do a live set at the DFA Holiday Party happening at (Le) Poisson Rouge on Saturday, December 19th. Also at the party will be Special Disco Version (DFA's James Murphy, who produced Free Energy's forthcoming Stuck on Nothing, and Pat Mahoney), Holy Ghost, Matt Cash and Justin Chearno. Tickets ($5) are on sale. Flyer is below.

Free Energy, whose last NYC show was also a holiday party, are also playing Pianos on January 21st (tickets) and Brooklyn Bowl on Jan. 22nd (tickets).

The Juan Maclean isn't playing the DFA holiday party, and isn't playing Music Hall of Williamsburg on December 18th as originally scheduled. The Brooklyn show was cancelled after the untimely passing of Jerry Fuchs.
