King Gizzard and the Wizard Lizard's North American tour started today at Bonnaroo festival and they just wrapped up their set as I type this (5PM Eastern). If you're not at the festival, you can stream many of the Bonnaroo performances live on BrooklynVegan.
The Australian band hits NYC next Friday (6/19) at Bowery Ballroom with Tonstartssbandht, and Quintron & Miss Pussycat. Tickets are still available.
Later that same night, there's a 1AM "secret show" at Baby's All Right. We don't know who it is, but Baby's tweeted that it's "one of the best live bands in the world right now" and we all know Baby's has a huge crush on that band.
In May, King Gizzard released Quarters, a double-LP of four 10-minute songs. You can stream the whole thing, and check out a list of updated tour dates, below...
