As mentioned, Seattle’s tropically-inclined Week of Wonders (featuring Leif Anders formerly of Orca Team) are here this week, playing their first NYC shows. Those start tonight (7/8) with a late show (doors 9 PM) at Mercury Lounge with Chalk & Numbers and Pale Lights. Tickets to that show are still available.
At tonight’s show you should be able to pick up WoW’s debut single, which is newly out via Happy Happy Birthday to Me and you can stream both sides below. We’ve got the premiere of the video to a-side, “Piggyback,” and you can watch that below.
If you can’t make tonight’s show, Week of Wonders have three other shows this week: Tuesday (7/9) at Death by Audio with Flown, Shark? and Hippy; Wednesday (7/10) at Cake Shop with The Hairs and The Scarfs; and Thursday (7/11) at Ho_Se with Samantha.
For the rest of you in North America, fear not. Week of Wonders are plotting serious tour plans for the rest of the year which will bring them back to our area this fall for two shows, both with Lame Drivers and Eureka California: Silent Barn on October 10 and Cake Shop on October 11. They’ll be here for CMJ too (October 15 – 19). All upcoming tour dates (many of which have TBAs in the venue department) are listed below.
