The Wombats Are Coming To The USA!

My “discovery” band from this year’s SXSW, The Wombats, are making a return to North America, with gigs in San Francisco (Popscene), Toronto (Modclub, 8/11-buy tix), Boston (Great Scott, 8/13-buy tix) and New York (Annex, 8/15-buy tix) and I couldn’t be more fuckin’ chuffed!! Some of you may have read my (very) brief mention of them earlier this summer. I also posted a bunch of pics of this band as they went through their paces in Austin during SXSW. I only wish I’d seen some of their “proper” gigs during the festival.
Their indie pop punk is infectious and their energy and stage presence are catchy as hell. You’ll be pogo-ing and singing along in no time. Check out a few of their tunes on their MySpace page and there’s other info on their official site. And not only that, but their drummer is a dead ringer for David Gordon Green….
If you live in any of the aforementioned cities, I would do my damnest to get to one of their shows. You can bet I’ll be up front and center for the Annex show!
