Editors/Stellastarr* Coming to South Burlington

The flood of indie rock continues.

Editors/Stellastarr* - March 21 - Higher Ground

Following the Arctic Monkeys in their so hot in England right now buzz, the Editors will be making a stop at the Higher Ground as part of their first major US tour. They took a quick spin through the US in mid January that left the mp3 blogging community's jaws on the floor (Bradley's Almanac, Brooklyn Vegan, Yeti Don't Dance, Village Indian, Gothamist). For more on this 4 piece from Birmingham, read False 45th's breakdown from late January.

And not to be outdone, they are playing with NYC's Stellastarr*.
Although they are a similar art-rock group whose name is easily lumped with Interpol (and are derivative of Gang of Four, Television, Echo & the Bunnymen, etc), they have their own dark and rich atmospheric art-school sound (see The Cure). They are on their 2nd LP and haven't received a smidge of the Editors' blogger love; I guess the jury's still out. I'll have to wait until late March to make my decision. I'm just curious who'll be opening for whom; afraid of another The National/Clap Your Hands debacle like what happened in Northampton last September.

Stream their upcoming/latest albums:
Editors - The Back Room (US - March 21, 2006/UK - July 25, 2005)
Stellastar* - Harmonies for the Haunted (US - Sept 13, 2005/UK - March 6, 2005)

Editors - 35 minute set from KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic - stream video and audio.
Editors - Acoustic session on French radio Planet Claire - June 22, 2005

    you know - more importantly - DMC is coming to the Pickle Barrel in Killington... you know you are as excited about that as I am...

    Saw them at Skidmore back in 95 and was a bit dissapointed. Be afraid what they are doing 11 years later and RUNless.

    It's actually just DMC's solo album, which I heard is pretty good... I think I heard one track off of it... too bad I'll be recovering from a POP weekend and an ASO show that night... ;-)
