Handsome Furs are set to play a (not so) secret show to celebrate the 1st anniversary of Phonopolis & Pome Records. The show is this Thursday January 8th. Tickets are $8 and the line up features a huge list of special guests, including: Julie Doiron, Miracle Fortress, The Luyas, Elfin Saddle, Adam and the Amethysts, Shapes and Sizes, Snailhouse, Special Noise, Nut Brown, and Patrick Gregoire (of Sister Suvi and Islands). Tickets are available at: Cheap Thrills, L’oblique, Atom Heart, Phonopolis, Sound Central, and Sonik. Each band will be playing a mini set, with Handsome Furs headlining. Thanks to forum poster Montreal for the info.

In other tour news, Sunset Rubdown will be performing at the Avant Festival in Moscow on April 25th, 2009 along with The Notwist. Thanks to Lyndsey for the heads up on this. Looks like they may be touring Europe in April/May, which means we should have some news soon about a supposed new record. According to SC Distribution “Sunset Rubdown set to be particularly active throughout 2009.” Sounds good to me.
