Long-running Boston dreampop band Swirlies, who seem to reactivate every couple years, have been tapped by Kurt Vile & the Violators to open on a string of dates in July. Fun fact: Rob Laasko, who plays in the Violators, is also a member of Swirlies. While those dates don't hit NYC, Swirlies will play NYC at the end of that run at Knitting Factory on July 22. Pure Sunray open and tickets are on sale now.

Kurt's tour recently hit NYC and it will be back for his headlining slot at the free 4Knots Festival in June with The Men, Parquet Courts, Marnie Stern, White Lung, and others.
