So The Subways are hitting the road in the States as a percursor to their debut album, Young For Eternity, dropping here early next year on Sire. Their sound is best descibed as the energy of The Crocketts and the crunch of The White Stripes mixed with the picturesque lyrcism of Kelly Jones of the Stereophonics. Also, the hyperbole-ridden mag that everyone loves, the NME calls them "The sexiest thing to sweep rock n'roll off its feet in years." It's getting late, but this album might slip on my year end top 10 list--it's been burning up the ipod lately in the best way possible. Here are the dates:
Mon Nov 28 Spaceland Los Angeles, CA
Tue Nov 29 Cinespace Hollywood, CA
Thur Dec 1 Popscene San Francisco, CA
Sat Dec 3 Great Scott Boston, MA
Tue Dec 6 Rothko New York, NY
Wed Dec 7 North Six Brooklyn, NY
Fri Dec 9 The Mod Club Toronto. ON
Get to the Boston show early to catch The Twenty Twos, who might be almost as good.
