CAVE European Tour Kick Off

posted October 6th, 2010

Some bands tour, others DOMINATE. Perhaps envisioning a Napoleonic invasion of epic proportions when booking this thing, the CAVE European tour has ballooned into a nitrous-filled cloud set to cover the mainland, Scandinavia, and even the United Kingdom from now til mid-December (dates still being added, daddy). For those of you fucked up enough to have missed out on purchasing Pure Moods, the new CAVE 12” EP and first for Drag City, this is your chance as they’ll be toting a bunch in their junk trunk. Considering that CAVE are likely playing in your living room, based on the number of dates they’re playing vs. the limited number of venues on this planet, your chances will be ample!

Oh but wait, that’s not the best reason to go see em. If you don’t know CAVE, then here’s the gist: these guys are one cohesive, mega-unit of a motorik live band, a fireball of epic jamisms. And, while they will certainly make you shake your ass, they will also absolutely fucking torch you: melt your face off, fry up the skin like gristle, pack it in their crack pipe and... well, you know. It’ll purify your mood, duh. Get on the CAVE-y train, get to the show now!
