Stimulus Package Tour

Los Angeles’ GLISS and Pittsburgh’s The Takeover UK will join forces this March on a co-tour dubbed “The Stimulus Package Tour.” All of the shows will be at recession-friendly prices, so grab your friends and come out to support these young musicians on the rise. We're talking like $5 or something for the show and super cheap merchandise. Think Fugazi folks.

As for the bands GLISS, is a Los Angeles trio (Victoria, Martin and David) who will release their sophomore effort Devotion Implosion on April 7th via Cordless Recordings. Devotion Implosion is a decadent slice of sexy, moody, atmospheric garage-pop ecstasy.

The Takeover UK are in fact NOT British but hail from the exotic land of Pittsburgh, PA. They will release their Rykodisc debut Running with the Wasters on March 24th. The foursome perform a raucous blend of pop smattered with a bratty dose of punk rock rebellion. Huge hooks and smashing choruses flirt with one another in songs such as "Ah La La," while the band's inherent charm shines through in tracks, "Evelyn" and "The Lonely Ones." The Takeover UK are as charismatic on record as they are live and that's why you should see them when they roll through your town.
