The Essex Green - is playing with all my favorite bands


The Essex Green (check out the review of their latest album) put out one of my early contenders for album of the year. The catchy hooks, the female/male vocal trade-offs, the folky ditties and the Pittsburgh love all add up to top shelf. Well they are on tour with some killer bands, including herohill favs Isobel Campbell, Kelley Stoltz, Band of Horses, Shout Out Louds, Tapes N' Tapes and Irving.

Unfortunately, no Vancouver date.. again. I think Irving must owe child support here or something, as their Voxtrot tour passes us by, and now this?
