Spinto Band UK Tour July 30, 2006

Posted by alexd in Music, Video.

Just go this in my inbox.

..there are some shows taking place. Some of them are in clubs, some at festivals, some others in record stores, and even a few more transmitted through your radio. All of these shows will be happening in the next few weeks. Here is a list of them:

Monday August 14th,
Fopp in Camden- catch a little in store set at 6 pm

Tuesday August 15th,
turn on the Zane Lowe show for a radio performance we will be calling “Zane, how Lowe can you go?” and competing in a limbo contest… we will also play some songs

Wednesday August 16th,
2 things: first, an instore (I think) at Vibes Bury at 1pm… second, an XFM radio performance at 9pm

Thursday August 17th,
an instore at Action Records, Preston at 12:30 in the afternoon followed by another XFM performance for the lovely fans in Glasgow at 9pm

So thats that. in the biz, we call most of that stuff promo. There are a few other things worth mentioning in this email. So read on.

We will be playing a festival known as The Carling Weekend Reading and Leeds Annual Get-Together. We perform in Reading on the Carling stage on the 26th and in Leeds on the same stage on the 27th. Then we may get on stage with Pearl Jam and sing a duet with them of their hit song Don’t Call me Daughter if they ever return our calls.

and there’s more..

Sunday 20th August Bristol – Academy 2
Monday 21st August York – Fibbers
Tuesday 22nd August Birmingham – Academy 2
Wednesday 23rd August Manchester – Academy 3
Thursday 24th August Norwich – Arts Centre
Saturday 26th August Reading Festival
Sunday 27th August Leeds Festival

That Fopp instore may make up a little for the earlier denial of CSS. The Spinto Band are great by the way. Perfect for anyone with withdrawal symptoms following the hiatus of Broken Social Scene, and the indefinite wait from The Arcade Fire next multiinstrumental extravaganza. Definitely check out this video for “Oh Mandy”. Could have been video for the year if it wasn’t for Kasabian’s “Empire”.

That ain’t no tour. That’s just a passing-by. Why do bands never play down here in Hampshire? Grr…
Ah well, I’ll see them at Reading. Can’t wait – the album was fantastic.
