Gang Gang Dance to re-embark on tour, not shun the West Coast

An inconsistent qualitative musical output can be one of the most frustrating things when deciding whether or not to see a band live. Should I go ahead and check out such-and-such band at so-and-so venue, even though their last album totally blew chunks, or if, aside from one spectacular album, the rest of their discography is the very definition of mediocrity? Fans of Gang Gang Dance, for the most part, don’t have this problem. Each of the band’s three LPs since 2005 has been warmly received by both fans and critics alike, who appreciate… I don’t know, new age experimentation mixed with a mild danceability? At the very least, it’s pretty enjoyable.

Still fresh off of the release of Eye Contact (TMT Review) back in May, Gang Gang Dance will be continuing a tour this month that essentially began in May, when they traveled through Europe and then through the Northeast and the Midwest in July. This tour, if you’re dead set on separating it from their most recent, will be focused primarily west of the Mississippi. No second thoughts here.
