Black Rebel Motorcycle Club: On Tour



Last Tuesday, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club released Baby 81 on RCA Records, their latest journey through psych-laden Brit rock. They kicked off their North American tour this past weekend in Arizona with each show being covered by a different blog for the Filter Tourzine. I'll be covering the Boston show at the Avalon on May 29th.

This tour had some pretty sweet openers lined up as well, but The Fratellis dropped out because they were pussies and The Horrors had to cancel because they ran out of money buying silly clothing. Pinch-hitting will be Austin's The Black Angels, The Cobbs [who I know nothing about] and Eastern Conference Champions, a band that one of my writers over at Stranded In Stereo has been raving about. All of the dates are below, as well as what band will be playing where. Check the tourzine for show reviews, vids and other goodies.

Seen BRMC a few times in concert. First time (Avalon) they were rad. Second time (Middle East), complete and utter shit (complete with between song complaining about what a tough life playing rock for a living is), and third time was okay (Paradise)...but not as good as the first.

Bands should really refrain from ever complaining about their jobs and should definitely never end sets early cause they're so tired of the whole, "touring thing".
