Fall and Winter Shows

By dave

Hi everyone,

after enjoying a brief respite for Halloween we are going to be finishing out the year with tours of Brazil, Argentina, our annual holiday show in Brooklyn, and a New Years tour of California, Colorado, and Nevada.

First up, Brazil and Argentina. We are embarking on easily our longest Latin American tour, covering a lot of cities and places we have never been as well as a return to Rio and Sao Paolo after a couple year abscence. Looking forward to checking in with old friends and making some new ones.

Then, we have our annual holiday show in brooklyn. This is gonna be an extravaganza. We are playing 2 sets of music, the forthrights, the frighteners and dj 100dbs are opening. Plus we have special guest, Greg Lee, of Hepcat fame, performing with the Slackers! This is gonna be rare and unique! Dont miss it.

Finally,we are finishing out the year in San Francisco. This time we are Great American Music Hall and its gonna be a party. Www.gamh.com We are using this as a kick off for a 9 date west coast tour of California and our first Colorado and Las Vegas shows in several years.

Thanks to everyone for all the support they have shown us this year as we tour for the great rocksteady swindle. We are gonna be getting some new material together as the year ends. A covers project for whatevski is in the works.

And speaking of tunes, as our 20th anniversary is coming up, we are going to be releasing a slackers 'greatest hits' retrospective album!

thanks again. See you out there!

Slackers to the Midwest & Canada.

By dave

After a couple week post-booze cruise breather, the Slackers will be hitting the road again. This time we are off to Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, and Michigan. A run across to the middle of the country and back. It will be our first time playing many of the songs from Rocksteady Swindle in that part of the world.

We will follow this up with a trip to Buffalo and Canada.

For most of this tour we are happy to bring along DJ 100 Dbs and the Green Room Rockers. Jordan Valentine & the Sunday Saints and the Forthrights will be meeting up with us on selected dates.

Currently, we are working on some more youtube videos (yes, a sequel to 'Dave of the Dead' is forthcoming!) and we have a 45 of New Year's Day in the works. Will let you know as it progresses towards completion.

The Slackers Back on Tour!

By dave

The Slack is back! Right now we are beginning an european tour in madrid. Heading out from there to Bilbao, the Uk, Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Italy, Poland, and Norway.

We brought some of our new vinyl version of Lost & Found with us. As well as our newest cd & vinyl, The Great Rocksteady Swindle

After Europe we got our Booze Cruises, the Midwest USA, and Eastern Canada coming up. Probably gonna start posting some exciting new gigs for the end of the year and early next year soon.

See You Out There.
