Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros tour together this fall in support of lengthy band names

Ugh. Oh, hey there, marquis-letter-hanging guy. Listen, you might want to sit down, because I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news for you. One of the biggest disasters for the marquis-letter-hanging world since The Presidents of the United States of America and Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin hit the road together on that improbable “Pop Bands Hypothetically Tour Together Sometimes” tour back in 2002 is afoot. Yup, this one’s a mouthful and I’m not going to sugarcoat it: Clap Your Hands Say Yeah are touring North America with Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros this fall.

Look, calm down, man. I’m on your side here. I know what you’re thinking, and all I can say is, I don’t know how the hell you’re gonna fit all that on that thing either. It just so happens that both bands have relatively new records out right now (CYHSY’s Hysterical and Edward Sharpe’s Here), and some booking guy somewhere thought it’d be a real slick business proposition to stick the two of them out there together with no regard whatsoever for the tireless little guy out there thanklessly hanging the band names on the marquis every night. Typical 1%-er bullshit, am I right? Either way, I’m with you, marquis-letter-hanging guy. I don’t see how this shit show is going to work. I mean, does that beautiful, antique, gold-guilded, pearl-inlaid marquis letter kit of yours that was passed down to you from your grandfather after he was struck by lightning back in 1989 while hanging letters for Metallica even have seven A’s???
