West Coast Tour Dates Announced by The Vacant Lots

Mexican Summer artists The Vacant Lots are set to make their first trip to the West Coast for a run of Fall dates September 20th – 27th. The label released their first official single ‘Confusion/ Cadillac’ earlier this year and since then the band have been touring the East Coast and playing festivals.

Pitchfork commented on ‘Confusion’, “It’s executed so efficiently, with just the right doses of studied apathy and simmering tension, that it’s difficult not to return to it’s ceaselessly repetitive groove again and again.”

“Hailing from the wooded confines of Burlington, Vermont, the Vacant Lots are musicians as well as scientists, having built a time machine that will transport your headspace directly to the Sunset Strip in 1967.”

The Vacant Lots are influenced by groups such as Bo Diddley, The Velvet Underground, The Stooges and Spacemen 3 and have developed their own sound , combining minimal drumming, hypnotic guitar riffs, electronic drone, poetry-driven lyrics, and live film projections.

Recently, the two-piece have been getting good reviews off the back of their single release including a Pitchfork debut of the video for their song ‘Cadillac’. They have previously toured with Sonic Boom’s Spectrum and this year played a number of East Coast US dates, SXSW, Austin Psych Fest 4, and supported Dean & Britta (Galaxie 500) in Brooklyn. They are in the process of recording new material and expect to have a second single out soon to be followed by a first official album release.
