Mission of Burma have confirmed dates for a short tour that will lead them up to the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago on July 30th.

They play NYC on July 14 at Warsaw in Brooklyn

There's also a presale for these shows starting tomorrow (Wed) at 10 AM (but not, apparently, for the Bklyn show. bah.)

Also, there's a listening party for the new album Tuesday May 23 upstairs at Pianos and May 27 at Tiswas 2.0... other listening parties across the country as well so check the website for those also.

Dave Allen, bass player for the Gang of Four, has a blog at Pampelmoose. Dave has also officially taken over stewardship of the Go4 MySpace page [don't send him a message, he doesn't have time to respond].

Art Brut's Bang Bang Rock and Roll finally got an official US release Tuesday. here's a live MP3 of Moving to LA from a show they did in Amsterdam
