Man Man Tour Tour

Man Man is heading out on tour in March by kicking things off in Baltimore, MD, heading down the East coast, then onto showcases at SXSW. After that, Midwest college towns, NYC, and finally, Rye, England for the ATP vs. Pitchfork festival. Not bad.

I’ve only seen about five minutes of these guys play live. It was their set at the Wicker Park Music Festival this year, right after the Benevento/Russo Duo played the set at the far end of the festival. The crowd was literally hanging on every note, not to mention hanging on the store windows and trees in the area to get a better view above the spilled-over crowd. It was huge. Way bigger turnout than The Duo, although I’m not surprised as it’s Wicker Park and therefore more hipster and therrefore more indie and therefore “we should be watching Man Man,” thoughts abound and surround the tight jeans and cool shoes.

I had fun just walking through the mayhem and Man Man was playing some serious mayhem themselves — I believe they were jamming on this tune…

I’ll be sure to catch them at least once down in Austin for SXSW. I’ll make sure to have my camera handy, too. These guys are super photogenic.
