Pssssst.....Hot Chip is coming

I'm very excited to report that Hot Chip will finally bring their Mercury Prize-nominated electropop to my beautiful town on April 25th. They are embarking on a mini tour of the US to make the trip stateside to perform at Coachella a little more worthwhile. In 2006 these Londoners had people all over the world dancing to their super sophomore album The Warning, winning over many critics and getting mentioned in countless Best of The Year lists, including my own.

Here's a look at the confirmed tour dates:

4/20/07 in New York City @ Webster Hall
4/21/07 in Washington, DC @ 9:30 Club
4/22/07 in Asheville, NC @ Orange Peel
4/23/07 in Atlanta @ Glenn Memorial Church School
4/25/07 in Austin, TX @ Antones (Tickets)
4/26/07 in Dallas TX @ Granada Theater
4/28/07 in Indio, CA @ Coachella
6/15/07 in Manchester, TN @ Bonnaroo Music Festival

If you're new, and have no clue as to why you should care that a group of English electronic kids are coming to your neighborhood, feel free to initiate yourself using the tracks below. The first selection is a remix that is hot off the presses, featured on the upcoming Junior Boys EP titled The Dead Horse, slated to hit stores on April 10. A bit more info on that one, here.

Hot Chip - that's pretty cool. What a hot ticket!

Is Antone's becoming the new indie venue in Austin? I can't believe they were able to snag this show and Animal Collective! Or is it that these bands just respect the history of Antone's?

Your guess is as good as mine on that one. I really have no clue. But I was a bit surprised when I saw that Hot Chip was playing Antone's. It's fine by me, I'd rather not see a monopoly on good shows being had by any one venue in town. Over the past few years Emo's has had a stranglehold on the market, that's for sure.
