The Feelies announce 2018 tour dates; Yung Wu LP being reissued
The Feelies don't so much tour as play short bursts of (long) shows, usually over a weekend, as their members are fairly far-flung these days. They've just announced a few shows including two nights at NYC's Rough Trade on April 13 & 14. Tickets for those shows go on sale Friday, January 12 at noon with AmEx presales starting Wednesday (1/10) at noon. The Feelies played three nights at Rough Trade last May and were just terrific. Any chance to see them should not be taken lightly.
The Feelies also have shows at Washington, DC's 930 Club on June 22 and Carrboro, NC's Cat's Cradle on June 23. Dates are listed below.
Meanwhile, Yung Wu, which was basically The Feelies but with percussionist Dave Weckerman writing the songs and singing, will have its 1987 album Shore Leave reissued by Bar/None in April. Stay tuned for details on that but you can listen to Shore Leave below.
