The Drones at SXSW (more by Faith-Ann Young)
The Drones

For a band from Australia, The Drones sure play in the US a lot (a good thing). And now comes word that The Drones have added a few more US shows surrounding their appearance at ATP NY 2009 (they played the upstate NY fest in 2008 too). That includes some West Coast shows, and a September 9th date at The Bell House in Brooklyn (two days before they play ATP) (no tickets yet - Tickets are now on sale.).

At ATP, The Drones' will be performing their 2005 LP Wait Long By The River and the Bodies of Your Enemies Will Float By (no word on whether they'll do that at other shows on the tour too). Also part of the 'Don't Look Back' segment of ATP (on 9/11): Suicide will perform their first LP, The Feelies will perform Crazy Rhythms, and Dirty Three will perform Ocean Songs. Tickets are still available.

Dirty Three also have a show scheduled for NYC around ATP NY, Bowery Ballroom on 9/13 (tix here).

The Feelies just finished up a three day residency at Maxwell's, and played an acoustic show at the Whitney.

The Jesus Lizard, who are performing on the Don't Look Back date of ATP NY but are not playing an LP in full, are also playing NYC, though their show is a couple of months later (November 16th). Tickets are still available. A second show is rumored, though still unconfirmed.
