LiS returns to Cambridge and sends their CD to the bargain bin
This Friday, April 8th, we make our first trip back to the Middle East Upstairs since Halloween, when we rocked a sold out show with Turkuaz and Hey Mama. We thought about dressing up like zombies and playing a bunch of Turkuaz songs, but we’ll save that for next year. This time we’re going big again, with Northampton dub-stars The Alchemystics and Philadelphia soul singer Nicky Egan. We’ve got a few tricks up our sleeve for this one, so make sure you RSVP.
Also, for those of you who don’t have a copy of A King’s Ransom, TODAY ONLY you can get it for a buck. With the help of Microfundo, a local company that helps bands like us get out there, we are giving away our album for free-ninety-nine. That means all you radio heads can name your own price for our newest record if you buy it today. Spread the word, and act fast, because it’ll be tomorrow before you know it. To pick up your copy of the album and to buy tickets for Friday’s show, just go to www.microfundo.com/loveinstockholm.
Festivals and Farmland: summer tour dates announced
Boston’s early days of spring still have the bite of winter, but before we know it, summer will be here again. Instead of sitting there stuck to your couch, check out our tour calendar for a show near you. We’re making our first ever journey to the midwest, playing a bunch of music festivals, and making our first trip back to Block Island since we slept in an unfinished foundation in a stranger’s back yard. A sample of our tour dates can be found to the right. For the complete list, go to www.loveinstockholm.com and there’s more to come, so stay tuned…
It’s been a good 2011 so far for Love in Stockholm, having spent most of the winter playing ski areas in Vermont, where it turns out the snow is a lot prettier. We just hit up Northampton last weekend with the killer band The Alchemystics, and we’re coming right back this Friday for a show at Bishop’s Lounge.
But this week, it’s all about Boston. We’re having our 2011 Boston debut at the brand new, soon to be legendary Brighton Music Hall (formerly Harpers Ferry) with the already legendary Rustic Overtones this Saturday, right here in Allston. We’ve also got the killin Connecticut boys Bronze Radio Return filling out the bill, so this show is not to be missed. Tickets are going fast, so make sure to click here to buy them before they sell out, and don’t forget to spread the word on the Facebook.
In other news, A King’s Ransom is now in heavy rotation on dozens of college radio stations around the US, and even Canada! Thanks to everyone who played the record on the air or requested it at their school. We’re blowing up baby.
Stay tuned for more shows in ski country, New York City, and a Mardi Gras show you don’t want to miss….
Grey clouds are becoming a staple of the Boston skyline as it looks like we’re getting yet another snow storm this week. It makes for a nice excuse to stay inside and write music all day, but it’s not too friendly for our now weekly trips to Vermont…yet we’re doing it again.
First of all, a big thanks to everyone who braved the cold in Burlington on Saturday. It dropped below 0 that night, and we still had a packed house at Red Square. Alex forgot his boots there and surprisingly still has most of his toes. We’re also excited to announce our triumphant return to Nectar’s on Mardi Gras weekend, March 5th to be exact. We’ve heard that Burlington goes big for Fat Tuesday, so we’re going to see if it lives up to the hype. Stay tuned…
As for this weekend, we’re heading back to Vermont to play Tuckernuck Shoals this Saturday, January 29th in Ludlow, right down the street from Okemo Mountain Resort. We’re playing all night, so hopefully we’ll see you there. If you have extra boots, Alex will love you forever.
Vermont seems to be our new home these days. We’re on the way up for our 3rd straight weekend in January, with one more to go. Check the Shows page or our Facebook to know where to find the party.
We’re getting pumped for our show tonight at the Lizard Lounge. The snow’s off the road, and you probably didn’t have to work yesterday, so come on out and kick off the weekend early. Tickets are available at the door.
Also, we make our triumphant return to The Fat Spy this Sunday in Vermont. Last weekend we played there out of pure dumb luck: we needed a place to stay, they needed a band. We ended up playing until close, cracking open a bottle of Bourbon, and playing poker with the owner almost until breakfast the next morning. Now we’re coming back a week later for the holiday weekend, and we’re doing the Sgt. Pepper’s Set. Love it.
We’re happy to announce another rave review of our album as well. Performer Magazine calls A King’s Ransom “a very strong full-length debut from a hard working group”. We’ll take it. Big thanks to the folks over at Performer, and you can read the full article here.
Stay tuned for more shows coming up, a chance to win some cool stuff, and more love from Stockholm.
