Red. White. Blue. The three colors of our flag. Also the three colors of France’s flag. The United Kingdom’s, too. Can’t forget about Chile, either. Or Norway for that matter. Anyway, a lot of countries actually use red, white, and blue for their flag, but, hey, we do it the best! Bang bang! Rah rah! In deference to the great three colors of this nation’s lasting symbol, Tom Vek is popping over to the United States this October and playing three shows. To play more would be disrespectful to those looking for unnecessary patterns in all facets of daily life.
In April, Vek put out his third record, Luck, through Moshi Moshi. In keeping with my insane conspiracy theory, Vek will never put out another record, to maintain immortal symmetry with the American flag. This sounds reasonable.
Tom Vek dates:
10.20.14 - Brooklyn, NY - Baby’s All Right
10.21.14 - New York, NY - Mercury Lounge (CMJ)
10.23.14 - Los Angeles, CA - The Echo
