Free Energy @ SXSW 2010 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Dominick Mastrangelo

There is much touring in DFA band Free Energy's future including that series of Daytrotter Barnstormer dates with Nathaniel Rateliff and others, the Pitchfork Festival, and three weeks on the road with Jukebox the Ghost which brings them to Bowery Ballroom on May 29th. Tickets are on sale. Miniature Tigers, who open a portion of that tour, are also on the NYC bill.

We'll also get the chance to see Free Energy this summer when they play a free show at South Street Seaport with Best Coast on Friday July 23rd, part of the annual Seaport Music Series that kicks off on July 2nd (that day's lineup and the rest of the summer's will be announced, at least in part, soon). Best Coast, who are also playing the Pitchfork Fest, recently passed through NYC and played to packed houses at Knitting Factory and Mercury Lounge.
