THE FLAMING LIPS
Wayne Coyne and company are no stranger to theatrics, and their most recently-announced live show might be one of their most memorable: the band will be hosting a special New Year's Eve show at Pelham, TN's The Caverns, a deep underground cave which was recently converted into a live music hall. Tickets and various packages go on sale Saturday (9/22) at noon, and you can find out more info here.
PIXIES (COME ON PILGRIM/SURFER ROSA SHOWS)
Pixies are celebrating Come On Pilgrim and Surfer Rosa with a joint reissue and three NYC shows.
Cults will head out on a tour with Montreal artist Munya starting with two shows at Washington, DC's DC 9 on November 30 and December 1, and wrapping up with two nights at Los Angeles' Echo on December 22 & 23 . Dates also include early and late shows at Brooklyn's Baby's All Right on 12/8. All dates can be found here and you can check out a just-released Mike Simonetti remix of Cults' "Offering" right here:
Their show originally scheduled for last night in La Crosse, Wisconsin was cancelled, so Modest Mouse's fall tour begins in Duluth, Minnesota tonight. Termination Dust are opening through 9/24 in South Bend, Indiana, and then it's a string of shows with no opener (like September 26 at Stranahan Theater in Toledo, Ohio), followed by a whole bunch of shows with Australia's Tropical Fuck Storm including Kings Theater in Brooklyn (which we're still giving away tickets to). The latest full set of MM dates is HERE.
MEWITHOUTYOU / SMIDLEY

Those shows are also with Daisy & the Chains. The first leg of the tour is with Joan of Arc and Hurry (and includes NYC). mewithoutYou's anticipated new album will be out in October on Run For Cover. All dates here.

Soccer Mommy, who's fresh off releasing a collaborative song with HEALTH, has once again expanded her tour, which now includes a second NYC show on 12/6 at Music Hall of Williamsburg (night one at the same venue is sold out). Both shows are with Ratboys, which is a great pairing. All dates here.
HURRY UP opening for WE WERE PROMISED JETPACKS
Hurry Up, the new project featuring former The Thermals members Kathy Foster and Westin Glass with Bangs' Maggie Vail, recently wrapped up a small US tour.
