Speedy Ortiz have been very active tourers lately. They already played NYC once this year, and have a T5 show with Courtney Barnett and Torres coming up on 7/22 (tickets), and in the past 24 hours they were announced for Riot Fest Denver, Riot Fest Chicago, and Fun Fun Fun Fest.

That T5 show is actually one of two NYC shows for Speedy, as they were recently added to Waxahatchee's River Rocks show on July 9 at Pier 84. The very talented Weyes Blood is on that show too, and it's free. Like all River Rocks shows on Pier 84, gates open at 6 PM and the music starts at 7.

Pier 84 is the same pier that 4Knots Festival is happening this year, which also just announced an expanded lineup, including Super Furry Animals.

Speedy recently put out a video for "Raising the Skate," one of the highlights off their new album Foil Deer. Watch that, with their updated list of tour dates, below...
