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 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.

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.

Summertime and the Slackin Is Easy

By dave

hey everyone,
as the dust settles from our busy spring, the slackers are getting some well deserved R & R.

but our rest will not be for long, as august comes around we will resume our mission of bringing word of the Slackers' new cd, the great rocksteady swindle to the world. first up, will be a festival heavy tour of europe including stops in spain, the uk, belgium, holland, germany, and norway. second, as september rolls around, we will be ending summer with our traditional new york and boston boat gigs. third, in october we will be hitting the midwest and canada with extended touring through ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, missouri, indiana, illinois, ontario, and quebec. We havent seen those guys for a while and looking at getting reacquainted.

In case you've been under a rock somewhere, our latest cd is the Great Rocksteady Swindle. There are a million ways to hear it. You can get it as a cd, vinyl, or as a download.

In other news, we have put out a new whatevski live release, 'live on the west side.' it features music from recent release parties. check it out at www.whatevski.org

Also, the Lost & Found vinyl is now out! check it out at the slackers' merch table or at the paper or plastic website.

and yes, although we are taking the month of july off from the slackers, we are not exactly relaxing. Vic is playing solo gigs with the Forthrights and Vic, Marcus, and Ara are doing Sic N Mad. Agent Jay is doing several regular dj nights in manhattan and brooklyn as well as working on the next crazy baldhead album. And yes, Im doing Rocksteady 7 at two boots in brooklyn on july 16.

so its been a fun first half of the year for the slackers, lets hope the 2nd half is even better!
see you out there!
