Coming To Your Local Bandstand: Ringo Deathstarr

Ringo Deathstarr, East Coast Tour 2008
We've said it before, but we're all too willing to say it again, especially since the band created this nifty graphic. Austin, Texas-based shoegaze behemoth Ringo Deathstarr will play the Abbey Lounge in Somerville, Mass. (literally just over the line from Cambridge in Inman Square) Monday Feb. 25. Other acts on the bill include Quixote, Action Verbs and Or Nothing -- all new names to us. Show time is 9PM, damage at the door is $7. Yeah, it's a Monday night, but you won't be sorry. The Deathstarr has updated its web site with full tour info via an interactive map, check it out here. And who else thinks the band would be very fitting tour support for The Raveonettes? We're digging that new video. Anyhoo, Ringo Deathstarr's self-titled EP was one of our favorite records of 2007; you can read our full list here. And since we're in a giving mood, here's an MP3.
