!!! west coast tour

To save you the trouble of scrolling down I have copied the whole blurb about !!! from Pitchfork today.

!!! To Tour Tour Tour West Coast
Matthew Solarski reports:!!! are the ultimate mood gauge. Because you may gab about them using any monosyllabic utterance thrice repeated, !!!-related conversations provide invaluable insight into a speaker's temperament. For instance, the gleeful may remark, "scope you at the Yay Yay Yay gig tonight, G!" To which the cynical may reply, "what the Fuck Fuck Fuck?" For the miserable, it's the Woe Woe Woe or Die Die Die show, while the unimpressed may duly refer to !!! as Blah Blah Blah or Eh Eh Eh. But fie fie fie on the haters, I say.
Whatever your disposition, I think we all can agree to shake that butt at Nic Offer's command when !!! descend upon the West Coast next month. The band behind the "Feel Good Hit of the Fall" plans to wrap up this season of dying leaves in appropriately decadent fashion, by sashaying up and down the western shores of the U.S. and Canadia on a seven-date party bender, also sometimes called a tour.
Shake shake shake it:
12-01 Eugene, OR - W.O.W. Hall
12-02 Portland, OR - Berbati's Pan
12-03 Seattle, WA - Crocodile Café
12-04 Vancouver, British Columbia - The Plaza
12-07 San Francisco, CA - Mezzanine
12-09 Pomona, CA - Glass House
12-10 Los Angeles, CA - El Rey
12-12 San Diego, CA - Casbah
The band is presently doing the whole "intermittent recording" thing, at work on a new batch of feel-good hits that should drop via Touch and Go sometime in Summer 2006. Indeed, !!! hope to use this tour to debut some of the fledging dancefloor anthems, which are, according to guitarist Mario Andreoni, "stripped, wiley and raw...but wiser." Truly though, what could possibly trump the wisdom emanating from "like I give a fuck about that motherfucking shit"?

Where the hell is Pomona? And what the hell is the Mezzanine? That's rad that they're going to be in town around the holidays. Get your tickets now. I hope they can have a show in Sac. Maybe on the 8th?

Too bad they won't be here for the Halloween show. I'd love to see them do some cokey disco band.

Pomona is in SoCal. Inland Empire nowhere to be exact. If they can play there, surely they can play here too. Schedules permitting, of course.

Mezzanine is a dance club in the city, close to Mission in the SOMA.
