Marissa NadlerMarissa Nadler is going on tour, and she has a few NYC shows coming up. One of them is with Michael Gira at the Highline Ballroom on September 14th (Jamie Stewart of Xiu Xiu was also originally on this bill - not sure what happened to him). In August, Michael will release a new Angels of Light album called We Are Him. I think he'll be playing some of those new songs at the show, but I assume by the billing that he won't actually have a backing band. In the past he has used Akron/Family as his band. They also contributed to the new record, and you can download one of those new songs they played on above.

Marissa doesn't have anything new out, but this is her first official tour since joining the Kemado Records family. Kemado is reissuing/releasing her latest CD in the U.S., and the celebration for that will take place on August 6th @ Sound Fix Records in Brooklyn where she'll play a free show (one of four free in-stores she has scheduled). Her other upcoming NYC show is September 13th @ Union Pool, and her last NYC show was just this past weekend for the Diamond Day Festival. Did anyone catch that? All tour dates below....
