Even after 14 years
In other Pitchfork related talk i'm getting slightly creamy about the upcoming ATP vs Pitchfork festival in the UK in early May. Sebadoh, Born Ruffians, Girls Against Boys, Caribou, Hot Chip, Bon Iver, Jens Lekman, Yeasayer, Les Savvy Fav, Hold Steady and more. Damn!
Also coming along for the ride and representing for the antipodeans is those dirty uncles of power-pop EVEN. They've been doing their well-respected thang for 14 years, and Ash and the lads have got a new self titled album (reviewed here) which they launch in Melbourne at The East Brunswick Club on the 24th of April. They then zip around Australia before jetting to UK to play ATP in early May. While in London they'll also support Sebadoh at Koko on the 6th of May and do their own shows on the 12th at Old Blue Last and the 15th at the Brixton Windmill.
New tracks from the self titled album up on their myspace and full details and oz dates are on Mess and Noise.
