If you’ve seen Donnie Darko more than ten times and think that, besides the latest Calexico record, new music has nothing to offer you, you may be tickled by the announcement of the upcoming Tindersticks North American tour dates.
To me, the Tindersticks have always sounded like the red wine-and-pills combination of Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen. But what do I know. Check out a fan page or two and thank me later.
TINDERSTICKS PLAY RARE LIVE PERFORMANCES IN NORTH AMERICA IN SUPPORT OF THE HUNGRY SAW
Following their reformation and the release of new Constellation album The Hungry Saw in 2008, we are pleased to announce legendary UK band Tindersticks will be bringing their inimitable sound and songcraft to North American stages for the first time in over five years. Led by the voice and lyricism of Stuart Staples, Tindersticks have always expertly conjured complex emotions and double-edged narratives through a sultry, swirling, finely orchestrated music that is gently uplifting, beautifully arranged, and shot through with dark tension.

Thu. Mar. 5 Washington, D.C. @ 9:30 Club
Fri. Mar. 6 Brooklyn, NY @ Brooklyn Masonic Temple
