April round-up

Wolf Parade Boston sign

Lots to say and not a lot of time to say it.

Firstly, Wolf Parade finished their tour with a double showing in Montreal but still have one more date to finish at this year’s Coachella on April 30th. You can find show reviews, some setlists and whatnot on the forum. And if you register there are some bootlegs to find and other exciting things including Maria’s excellent photos from several shows she visited.

Secondly, they’ve been showing off their new t-shirts during this tour with Matt Moroz’ lovely artwork on. They’re not yet available online, but we’re expecting them to go up on Sub Pop’s site at some point in the future. More images have been posted on the forum. Thanks to jwk and Marshy for the scans.

Fourthly, Dante will be performing under his Johnny and the Moon pseudonym in Montreal on Thursday night.
