It's nice to see so many of my friends and bands I've been lucky enough to work with hitting the road this summer, some in pretty big ways.



First up, Destruction Unit just played Choas in Tejas last Friday, and now they're on the road for the next month or so with the great Merchandise and Milk Music.  You can head on over to their FB page for day-to-day updates, and read friend-of-the-label Jenn Pelley over at Pitchfork with more info about the tour.  Check out dates below and have a listen to Sonoran, the LP that DU released on Volar a couple of years ago.

Next up, Shannon and the Clams just did a small run of West Coast dates this past week, and today marks day one of many touring the US with Mikal Cronin.  The Clams just released their great new LP Dreams in the Rat House on Hardly Art, with some pretty crazy press around it lately, like Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith's guitarist, etc.) naming them on the 10 Garage Bands to Watch and the LP debuting this week at #19 on CMJ.  Listen to the "Gremlins Crawl"/"White Rabbit" 7" below, order the last few copies for $4 here.
