Silversun Pickups Sideshow

Well this is exciting news. As you might have known, Los Angeles quartet Silversun Pickups are supporting Snow Patrol on their Australian tour in September. Not being a Snow Patrol fan, nor a stadium rock show fan, I was hoping for a SSPU sideshow. The good news is, it's now happening. They are playing the Annandale Hotel on September 15. Also apparently they have a Melbourne show planned but I don't have any details of that yet.
Tickets go on sale July 26 and more information can be found here.
MP3: Well Thought Out Twinkles
MP3: Lazy Eye

Have you heard the new Sunset Rubdown song?
It is quite fantastic, is it not? "Up On Your Leopard, Upon The End Of Your Feral Days" is currently streaming at Pitchfork.
Speaking of Mr Krug's supremely talented group they are playing Pop Montreal, October 3-7.
Here are some of the artists just announced to play (quite nice I think)-

Ted Leo and the Pharmacists

Sunset Rubdown
Magnolia Electric Co.
Fujiya & Miyagi
Black Mountain

    Yeah I couldn't give a crap about Snow Patrol but I've just got into Silversun Pickups and absolutely loving the album. At first, I swore it was a female lead singer.

    Glad to hear they're playing a Melbourne sideshow. I'll definitely be there but I'd love to know where!

    I'm with you RE: the female singer James - it was only the film clip for Lazy Eye that set me straight.

    Snow Patrol should be opening for Silversun Pickups. Period.

    Karen-Lazy Eye cleared a few things up for me too.

    Christopher-You are 100% correct. Hopefully those Grey's Anatomy fans will get a bit of a shock.

    James-Ding Dong Lounge? Is that good? Have not been there.

    It's a pretty small venue, not the greatest lighting set-up but the sound can be good so it will sell out pretty fast I'd imagine.

    I hate being under 18, otherwise I'd go!
