(SANDY) ALEX G
Still promoting last year's House of Sugar, (Sandy) Alex G has just announced a spring tour that kicks off in Cleveland on March 30 and runs through May 3 in Jacksonville, FL. Most of those dates are will Miserable or Madeline Kenney and there's nothing in the Northeast this time around. Head here for all dates and check out the new video for "Bad Man" below:
Stephen Malkmus is releasing his “folkie” and “stoner feel” new album Traditional Techniques, in March. He made it with Matt Sweeney (Chavez, Zwan) and Chris Funk (The Decemberists) and that trio will tour this spring.
We mentioned that Stereolab was playing NYC after appearances at III Points and Shaky Knees, but it turns out those shows are part of a two-week US tour.
DAVE MATTHEWS BAND
Dave Matthews Band have announced a summer amphitheater tour, beginning with a two-night stand at Connecticut's Mohegan Sun Arena and also including two night stands in Chicago, California, New Hampshire, Saratoga Springs, and more; one night stands in NJ, Wantagh (Jones Beach), Grand Rapids, Milwaukee, and more; and a three-night stand at Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington around Labor Day with Mavis Staples, Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, Allen Stone, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, and Dumpstaphunk.

This weekend you can catch Cameron in Salt Lake City on Sunday. All dates are here.
PEARS / SINGLE MOTHERS
New Orleans' PEARS and Ontario's Single Mothers are both bands who mix hardcore and poppier punk in interesting ways, so it sounds like a good pairing that they'll be hitting the road together this spring.
