Soccer Mommy played Rough Trade with gobbinjr & Long Beard (pics, video)
Soccer Mommy released their excellent full length debut Clean earlier this year via Fat Possum, and they've been doing a ton of touring in support of it. They stopped in NYC for two shows last week: Wednesday (5/2) at Elsewhere Hall with Gabe Wax, and Rough Trade on Friday (5/4) with gobbinjr and Long Beard. We went to the Rough Trade show, and you can find pictures in the gallery above and a couple of fan-shot videos below.
Soccer Mommy's tour continues through September, and includes some very cool opening slots, Speedy Ortiz, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, and Paramore included. They'll also be back in NYC soon for Northside Festival, where they open for Liz Phair at National Sawdust. After that, they play the Barclays Center stop of Paramore's tour.
