This collection of giant golf balls has been mysteriously enmeshed in the earth somewhere in the south of England and recently we have been invited to play a show within them. You just don’t say no to an offer like that. Especially not when the lineup includes superstars like The Flaming Lips and The Go! Team… So consider this the official announcement of our June 30 show in the plant-friendly, bubble wrap paradise that is The Eden Project in Cornwall, England.
But before all of that, we’ll be celebrating St. Patricks Day in traditional fashion by playing a 7am boozefest in Denver, Colorado (as one does). On March 17 Denver’s 93.3 is sponsoring the 2011 Keggs and Eggs celebration and we’ll be there, party hat securely affixed to our collective heads. Joining us are Darling Thieves and Reno Divorce so, you know, set your alarm.
After the keggstravaganza, we’ll be heading down to Mexico City for Spring Break (woot) and to join the 2011 Spring Quesadilla Tour (seriously) at the Hippodrome of the Americas on March 25th. We’ll be playing with some great bands, including Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Local Natives, and Yeasayer. After Mexico City, we’re heading over to Guadalajara for our March 26 show at the Teatro Estudio Cavaret. Tickets just went on sale. Get yours here. We’re looking forward to seeing all of you. Hasta pronto, Mexico. And hasta pronto, spring and summer.
