Tour dates: Rebecca Gates and the Consortium (July 28 in Columbus)

I know there are a few of you out there that remember The Spinanes – the Rebecca Gates-fronted SubPop band that released 3 albums, including the excellent Manos, in the mid ’90s.

Earlier this month, Rebecca released her first album since 2001′s solo effort, Ruby Series. The Agit Reader’s Jennifer Farmer reviewed Rebecca Gates and the Consortium’s The Float this week and says, “As a whole, the album, with all its breezy, yet hard-hitting guitar melodies and breathy vocals, feels like it’s the reflection of one big, long journey, which it truly is.”

Rebecca will be touring a bit in July and will make a stop in Columbus at Double Happiness. See dates below:

I was in the middle of something important before you oh so kindly interjected. Maybe there was a reason your interview requests weren’t granted. Fuuuuuck.

Oh hey how’s it going? I’m feeling better thanks for asking. I meant to do this last week but after going to see that “Paranormal Activity” pos@Studio 35 and purchasing Them Crooked Vulture tickets upon arriving home, I awoke on Tuesday morning feeling as though I was hit by a Mac truck. That being said, I had no motivation to do anything so I decided to neatly(weakly) wrap up two weeks of shows at one go. I’m talkin Built to Spill, ipps, Buffalo Killers, Brainbow, The Lindsay, Gil Mantera’s Party Dream, Jemina Pearl and some website that makes Cringe look like Pitchfork. You know what to do.
