GODS & QUEENS booking US tour, need assistance


Brooklyn/Philadelphia trio GOD & QUEENS are gearing up for an early summer US tour, but quote guitarist/vocalist Jamie Getz who is booking the tour:

“Everyone I used to deal with in my peer group has moved up/on/out, and either is done with it altogether, or they are now working at Live Nation, totally out of touch with anything DIY, or they are the “talent buyers” at medium sized clubs.”

This translates to the band needing help booking shows in your town. They will play your house/garage/basement/club/bar/restaurant/gallery/whatever. Here is their proposed itinerary:

In mildly related news, completely unprompted and without explanation, Getz also sent us the lyrics for GODS & QUEENS‘ “untitled” debut 12″+CD that was released on Robotic Empire earlier this year. No clue why these hardheads wouldn’t just include them with the album, but you can now find those here:
