After just finishing two buzzed about performances at Wilco‘s Solid Sound Festival in Massachusetts and Firefly Music Festival in Delaware, the boys of Foxygen aren’t ready to hang up their touring hats just yet.
Starting with Forecastle on July 13th the band is hitting other big festivals inlcuding Pitchfork on July 21st, Pickathon in early August, and Austin City Limits in October with many more dates in between. Peep the full list of cities below with the new dates in bold.
Watch Unknown Mortal Orchestra perform in a dark and dreamy session at The Great Escape for Bowlegs! The track above, “Opposite of Afternoon”, is off their newest album II. Catch the band on tour at a city near you by checking the dates HERE.
During this past SXSW, Foxygen graced the Hype Motel Showcase with their electric stage presence and energetic brand of psych-rock. Hype Machine just posted a great video of Foxygen’s performance so even if you weren’t there, you can experience them live right from computer! Watch the video above and then check out their tour dates HERE which includes a bunch of summer festival appearances so chances are high you will see these boys strutting their stuff right before your eyes!

Last week when Peter Wolf Crier toured through Washington DC they had time to stop by WGTB, Georgetown University’s radio station and play a few songs. Peter Wolf Crier played “For Now,” “Crutch and Cane,” “Saturday Night,” and “Untitled 101″ in a stripped down and more restrained fashion. As you listen to these live versions the simple beauty and intimacy of these songs really unfold. On the really good days in this biz real magic happens, and this session is a good example of just that. You can streampeter-wolf-crier-crutch-and-cane all four songs from the session over at WGTB’s blog.
When PINK MOUNTAINTOPS were in Vienna, Austria last May they played this acoustic session in the bar before their show at Arena. Viennese blog They Shoot Music Don’t They was on hand to record the impromptu performance that included “Vampire,” “Plastic Man, You’re The Devil” and “Leslie.”
Pink Mountaintops are long since back from Europe and are apparently well rested. On top of just completing their second US tour behind “Outside Love,” the band will be heading out yet again on a stateside tour that includes select dates with label mates Dinosaur Jr.
