Luna get back on the road this week with dates in Alexandria VA, New York NY and Boston MA before heading to Europe for shows.

But first, Britta plays her first solo headline show in New York City at (Le) Poisson Rouge on Wednesday night - she'll be backed by some familiar faces Dean (of course) and Sean and Lee - so if you missed out on tickets for the band's Rough Trade shows you can still get to see Luna backing Britta!

The four of them then head to The Birchmere in Alexandria for a Luna show on Thursday (with support from Britta) followed by dates in Boston and NYC.

Here are all the US dates before they head to Europe…

28 September 2016 Britta Phillips at (Le) Poisson Rouge, New York, NY, USA
29 September 2016 Birchmere Music Hall, Alexandria, VA, USA
30 September 2016 Royale, Boston, MA
1 October 2016 Rough Trade NYC, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Happy birthday Naomi Yang Galaxie 500’s bassist (and occasional singer) and Damon & Naomi’s Naomi.

Here’s Damon & Naomi’s gorgeous cover of Pearls Before Swine’s Translucent Carriages

Damon & Naomi are currently touring in China which means I’m rattling this post off while it’s still Naomi’s birthday where she is!

It’s well worth following Naomi’s Instagram and Damon’s Twitter for details of their Chinese sojourn.

Happy birthday to Damon Krukowski, Galaxie 500's drummer and Damon and Naomi's Damon.

In 2016 he has shown his true rock and roll credentials by falling down hotel stairs and playing (half) a gig mere hours later, followed by an ambulance trip, a few hours in A&E and then being back on-stage in another country a day later!

Here he is on-stage in London with Richard Youngs, after the fall but before the ambulance trip…

Damon Krukowski - The New Analog
Damon Krukowski - The New Analog

Damon will be presenting a talk presenting ideas from his forthcoming book The New Analog on Thursday 11th August in Boston

The talk will take place at the recently opened The Podcast Garage at 267 Western Avenue, Boston MA.

The book of The New Analog will be coming out on The New Press in 2017 and will...

[argue] that the preservation of aspects of analog in the digital era is necessary for the arts. It posits a definition of analog not as the ante- or anti-digital, but as a set of relationships crucial to the use of all our senses and to our sense of community. It does not make an argument for a nostalgic return to the past, proposing instead that the analog need not and should not be left behind in our rush toward a digital future.
