Lawrence band The Dead Girls, who are certainly alive and well, celebrated the release of their new album Out of Earshot with a show at the Czar Bar in Kansas City last night. But they're not done celebrating yet.
Tonight the band will have another release show at the Jackpot Saloon in Lawrence. Opening for them will be The Noise FM, Radio City, and Bandit Teeth. Finally, the boys (aka Girls) will play a couple shows out in Manhattan to celebrate the release at Sisters of Sound (a terrific record store, by the way) and Auntie Mae's tomorrow. Manhattan is where both Podstar and Ultimate Fakebook started out, in case you didn't know.
So far only vinyl copies of Out of Earshot are available, but the band will release digital and CD versions next Tuesday, April 6th on Rocket Heart Records.
Out of Earshot is probably the band's most polished and hook-laden record yet- there are even some acoustic ballads on here. In other words, prepare yourself for a lighter, more acoustic based version of The Dead Girls before you listen.
If you have a record player, you can pick up a copy tonight at the Jackpot. The show is $10 and begins at 10pm.
