Death Grips extend their already extensive spring/summer tour

Death Grips extend their already extensive spring/summer tour

America and Europe have clearly embraced the loveable bunch of rascals we endearingly refer to as Death Grips (TMT Review). Case in point? The band, already scheduled to play every single music festival in Europe and mid-sized venue in the Northeast, has announced the expansion of their tour into America’s heartland and great frontier West. No longer only available to the upper echelons of ‘liberal’ society in socialist Europe and America’s snooty East Coast cities, it’s the everyman in Kansas and Colorado’s turn to enjoy some true American experimental hardcore hip-hop live and in person.

Even in Chicago, where I’m located, the early show time (6:30 PM) was clearly chosen so Death Grips’ older and younger fans have a chance to make it out. I hear nursing homes and primary schools are organizing bus trips to The Bottom Lounge this summer as the demand is so high amongst these otherwise disenfranchised sections of the music enjoying public. When a band goes on at 12:30 AM, it’s just too late for Grandma, no matter how much she likes the new Acid Mothers Temple record!

Join the legions who have already purchased tickets and plan to see Death Grips when they roll through your town — if you live in two out of the seven continents, chances are they won’t be too far away at some point in the next three months.
