New Orleans, LA
Here's where we'll be:
coming your way in Feb/March with some amazing openers including The Tontons, Walker Lukens, Spaceface and SWIMM. tickets/info
We've got a brand new t-shirt. We named it "Dreamlove" and it was designed by Jo and Annie Lynch (the girl in the photo). Click her to buy it.
Also, until the end of the year we're taking $5 off all t-shirts and vinyl. Order now and get 'em in time for X-Mas! Holiday love.
Thanks from the bottom of our fat, swollen hearts to everyone who made our experience Saturday so unforgettable. Catch us for weekend two where we get to do it all over again! In the mean time check out these lovely shots by Nick Simonite and Roger Ho.

Also, Tolly Moseley came out to our studio recently and managed to pack 2 hours of convo into this great little interview piece on our new music and approach, "The Bright Light Social Hour: The Next Chapter."
So much love!!
It's been nice and cozy in the studio, but we're more than ready to get back on the road for a proper tour! Austin's enchanter Walker Lukens will be joining us for many of the dates, with our good buddies from NYC Black Taxi finishing things off. All details and tickets links at our Tour Dates page.
