Win FREE TIX to Disappears @ Valentine’s, 4/18/12

April 12th, 2012, 11:00 am by Greg

One of the most anticipated shows of the spring concert season is coming up next week.

No, not Springsteen. We’re talking about Chicago post-punk rockers Disappears, who step into the spotlight at Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany on Wednesday night.

Post continues below...

The band is on tour in support of their new album, “Pre Language” on Kranky Records, fueled by drummer Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth. Joining them at Valentine’s will be Kranky labelmate Lotus Plaza (the solo side project of Deerhunter guitarist Lockett Pundt), who just released his sophomore album, “Spooky Action At A Distance” earlier this month. And rounding out the night of adventurous sounds will be local underground supergroup and sonic explorers Location Ensemble in support of their new self-titled, live, debut disc.

Co-sponsored by UAlbany radio station WCDB-FM and Albany Sonic Arts Collective, Disappears invades Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany on Wednesday (April 18) with Lotus Plaza and Location Ensemble sharing the bill. Showtime is 8:30pm. Priced at $15, advance tix are available here.
