As mentioned, Scottish indie trio PAWS are over for their first American tour on their way down to SXSW. It starts with two shows in NYC: Tuesday (3/5) at Glasslands with Dinowalrus and OVLOV (tickets); and Wednesday (3/6) at Cake Shop with Shark? and EULA. All tour dates are listed below.

To commemorate the trip, the band recorded three new songs for a cassette that will only be available at merch tables on this tour. (They'll also be selling last year's great Cokefloat! LP.) However PAWS were nice enough to give us one copy of the tape to give away and details on how to win it are below. We're also premiering a stream of the entire tour cassette below.
