Buke and Gase return to Europe/UK for tour

Buke and Gase had an eventful summer. (That's short for "event full," get it. Ha ha ha -- someone stop us before we kill again...with jokes.) Anyhoo, having spent most of June tearing it up across the 'States alongside Tomahawk (complete with a stop in the nation’s capital opening for Animal Collective), the band is now headed “across the pond” to spread the love in Europe and the United Kingdom this August. Maybe you wanted to check out one of their shows in April, but were distracted by something less interesting like a wedding or birthday party or a gig by a more popular band who you now realize are not as good as Buke and Gase.

The band has a bunch of festival dates lined up -- including a set at the Haldern Pop Festival -- in addition to a handful of appearances alongside critically-acclaimed violinist, composer, and Brassland friend Owen Pallett. Two special notes: (1) The London gig, originally scheduled for the 350-capacity Bush Hall, immediately sold out and has been upgraded to the twice-as-big Village Underground, and now that show is rapidly selling out. (2) If you happen to live in Edinburgh, you get to catch Buke and Gase’s one-off show with recently re-formed and completely insanely great post-punk rock band Swans. Go ahead, go see it, and send us taunting emails about how we missed it. See if we care. (We care.)

If, for some reason, you’re still feeling noncommittal, note that this may be Buke and Gase’s final touring in support of their most recent album, General Dome. The band tell us this is your last chance to catch them live before they hibernate for to make new stuff, record stuff, and generally stay put at home for awhile. More of an ultimatum now, isn’t it? We don’t want to sound like a bad infomercial, but this is your LAST CHANCE TO GET INVOLVED! (At least for now.) So mark your calendar, get yourself a ticket, and catch them while you can.
