Too Drunk To Dream

…ain’t no drinking when the bottle’s dry…

Congrats are in order to Providence’s The Low Anthem

Little Rhody’s own The Low Anthem announced today that they have been signed to Nonesuch Records. How cool is that.  Now, seeing them perform at Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel on April 24th will taste even sweeter.

Tickets are still available, for 12 bucks. Elvis Perkins in Dearland, and Deer Tick (BOTH of whom are current blog favorites- check the last.fm page) are also on the bill. (Click HERE for tickets to the event)


from their web site

Today is a great day for The Low Anthem! We have signed a wonderful and fair record deal with the world’s best record label. Nonesuch Records will be supporting our national rerelease of Oh My God, Charlie Darwin without asking us to change anything! The tentative rerelease date is June 9. Proper concert celebrations with all bells, whistles, whiskeys, etc. will be announced shortly on the website. Heartfelt thanks to all. Can’t wait to see you!!

The Low Anthem

Poking around on youtube, I couldn’t find any decent videos for the band, so I made a couple.  Here’s a video for the song ‘Charlie Darwin’.

Without knowing squat about the inner workings of the label and whatnot, Nonesuch seems, to me, to be the raddest major label in existence. They’ve been a favorite of mine since they signed Wilco in 2002, after the infamous fallout between the alt-country giants and their previous label Reprise.
