Thanks to J at Heart on a Stick for alerting me that The Dears are playing Bowery Ballroom on Tuesday, September 12. Tickets are $17 and on sale now. The band should be good and warmed up after a summer playing festivals in Europe, and hopefully hyped by the impending release of their great new album, Gang of Losers, due out October 4 via Arts & Crafts.
So glad they’re playing here again and not moving up to Webster Hall — the Dears’ two phenomenal shows at Bowery last year helped earn their place as my pick for Best Live Band of 2005. I implore you… this is a gig not to miss!
Meanwhile, the Dears have finished the video for Gang of Loser‘s first single, "Ticket to Immortality," directed by Maxime Giroux and you can watch it here.
