Naam at the Action PR showcase at SXSW (more here)

Naam will headline Cake Shop on June 9th alongside support from Richmond's downtuned miscreants Cough, the rifftastic Elder, and Brooklyn's own Elks as part of a BV/1000 Knives production. $10 gets you in the door.

The show is one of a pair that Naam will play with the mighty Elks, as both will support Karma To Burn and Year Long Disaster at Knitting Factory on Friday (5/14). Want to go? I have two pairs of tickets and one copy of Karma to Burn's new album Appalachian Incantation to give away, details on how to win are at the bottom of this post. Appalachian Incantation hits store shelves on 5/18.

Naam is also scheduled to play the NY Eye & Ear Fest on My 23rd. Black Dogs, Liturgy, Effi Brest, Twin Stumps, Blondes, Hunters, and more will all play the fest over the show's two days. Tickets are still up for May 22nd, May 23rd, or both.

Cough last played NYC as part of the BV Northside Fest show at Europa alongside Doomriders, Sourvein, Unearthly Trance, and many others. Unearthly Trance will be back for Northside Fest this year, this time as part of the BV/1000 Knives production of Floor at Europa. Tickets are still on sale or you can get in with your Northside badge.
