The New York City date for the upcoming Handsome Furs tour has been finalized. They will play the Bowery Ballroom on April 6th. Tickets will go onsale through Ticketmaster on March 5th at noon. The band has also been recently added as the support act for Spoon when they play New York venue Terminal 5 on April 9th. Tickets are on sale now.

Also, it appears Sunset Rubdown will be embarking on a full US tour in March/April. So far the only dates known are in Toronto, NYC, and now in Buffalo. Hopefully a full list of dates will be released soon.

EDIT (4th March 2008): It turns out that Sunset Rubdown are not making a Spring tour. The rumour was just confirmed to us as false by Jordan Robson Cramer.

There seems to be a rumour floating around that we’ll be doing a Spring tour, but unfortunately that’s not the case. I just wanted that to be clear so people wouldn’t be too disappointed.

Thanks, Jordan!
