Alex G’s tour with Teen Suicide comes to PhilaMOCA on February 3rd
Philly’s Alex G recently announced an east coast/mid-west tour with Maryland noise-pop band, Teen Suicide. Frontman Alex Giannascoli received high praise from press for his June 2014 full-length debut, DSU. Spin, Rolling Stone, and Pitchfork are a few magazines to pick up on his DIY-sound, and the record is his first label-backed release off Orchid Tapes.
Rolling Stone named “Harvey” – a bedroom-pop, airy sound off DSU – one of the top 50 songs of 2014. The 21-year-old lo-fi artist recently put out a video for “Harvey”, in which a model house burns down while he strums his acoustic guitar in a bedroom.
Alex G. recently wrapped up a December leg of a tour with Cymbals Eat Guitars, and just announced a tour with Teen Suicide, a lo-fi noise pop quartet hailing from Maryland. The band was primarily active from 2011-12 and now plays shows from time-to-time; frontman Sam Ray has been involved in a string of projects like Julia Brown, an indie-pop project featuring various artists, and ambient dance project, Ricky Eats Acid.
The tour begins January 28 in Rochester, New York and ends February 6 in Somerville, Massachusetts. The tour will stop in Philadelphia at PhilaMOCA on February 3 with girl punk duo, Girlpool; more information can be found here.
