Going On Tour! Part 2: Sirs & Weird Korea

In Celebrate Your Scene, Features, Gigs, New Jersey on May 15, 2010 at 12:54 pm

So a few great bands that are based at SUNY Purchase are planning summer tours and I would like to encourage all of you out there to help them out by going to see them if they are playing by you, but also by helping them set up a show or directing them towards someone who could help.

The first two are Sirs and Weird Korea, and they are going on tour together this summer starting July 17th in Woodbury, CT for Pop Punk Is Dead 2 and heading down south towards Vienna, Virginia on July 28 to play at the ‘Super Fun Time Palmer House’. Sirs is made up of Justin Jurgens (1/2 of Dino Dad Records), Hart Seely (of Zona Mexicana), Kyle Seely, and my good friend Dave Benton (of Little City FiresSportsSpook Houses, and is the other 1/2 of Dino Dad Records). They have just put out a new release called ‘Vas Deferens’ available for free here. Weird Korea are Nic Shapiro, Matt Palmer, and Nick Corbo. Download ‘NO ART / NO TRADE’ here (especially give ‘Nebuchadnezzar II’ a listen). They’ve just recently opened for Titus Andronicus at SUNY Purchase. Full summer tour dates below, get at either band if you can help, and be sure to try to make it out to one of their shows if you can.
