New Pornographers

As mentioned The New Pornographers' longtime drummer Kurt Dahle left the band abruptly in September, just a few days after playing NYC's The Brill Building. The band have replaced him (on this tour at least) with Joe Seiders of Beat Club who has also played drums for Tracy Bonham, Juliana Hatfield, and others.

In other member shuffle news, Amber Webber of Black Mountain and Lightning Dust filled in for an absent Neko Case on their two recent Vancouver shows, but Neko rejoins the band tonight (10/6) in Seattle at The Showbox. (They played live on KEXP earlier today, look for archive video soon.) They'll be at NYC's Hammerstein Ballroom on November 17 with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart (tickets).
