Magnetic Fields tour in February following Distortion release
In support of the January release of Distortion, the Magnetic Fields have a handful of shows scheduled for February and early March. A limited number of pre-sale tickets are available beginning today at MusicToday, and all shows are all ages.
Or you can just do what my grandpappy used to do and walk yourself down to the venue box offices in a couple weeks or so and avoid any surcharges. Meanwhile, you may have been hearing a newly penned Stephin Merritt tune lately in between your nightly television programming. That's because Volvo hearts indie pop. And Merritt is a great songwriter. The two commercials for Volvo's XC-series wagon, "Wheels" and "Showroom," began airing last month and feature the song "I'm in a Lonely Way," which is now availabe on itunes. Here are the shows: FEBRUARY 11-12 Iron Horse Music Hall Northampton, MA FEBRUARY 14-15 *** Somerville Theater Somerville, MA FEBRUARY 22-23 *** Town Hall Theatre New York, NY FEBRUARY 28-29 *** The Herbst Theatre San Francisco, CA MARCH 2-3 *** The Henry Fonda Theatre Los Angeles, CA MARCH 6-7 *** Town Hall Seattle Seattle, WA MARCH 14-16 (Two performances per night -- six shows total) Old Town School of Folk Music Chicago, IL *** pre-sale advance tickets through MusicToday starting today.
