Girls @ Bowery Ballroom in Nov (more by Vincent Cornelli)

San Francisco's Girls are currently on the road with their friends the Smith Westerns and Magic Kids, the many-membered pop group from Memphis who played NYC last July and whose debut LP, it was just announced, comes out later this year on True Panther Sounds (which is now part of Matador and also the label that put out the Girls record).

Girls will go on tour across North America this April with Sub Pop signees Dum Dum Girls. The trip finishes at Coachella, but before that, the bands will play a Saturday, April 3rd show at Webster Hall. Tickets on sale soon.

Before then, Dum Dum Girls have a February 21st show at Mercury Lounge with Frankie & The Outs, Sub Pop signees Happy Birthday and Coasting. Tickets are still on sale.

The Smith Westerns will also be in NYC in April - two shows were just announced. They'll play Market Hotel on April 3rd (the same night Girls are at Webster), and then Mercury Lounge with Sub Pop signees Male Bonding on April 4th (tickets on sale Friday at noon).

Dum Dums will be in the UK at the end of February and SXSW in March, where you can see Magic Kids as well. All tour dates and a video of Magic Kids at Goner Fest '09 and around town are below...
