Generally speaking, I’ve always tipped my proverbial hat to club kids for their boundless capacity to explore the boundaries of stimulus-fueled human pleasure. (I say this as an inmate of the greater “indie rock ambit,” a large portion of whose enjoyment tends to come from sulking in contemptuous fits of gloom and cynicism, often with a cheap beer and a roll of smoldering plant material in our hands.)

And if you happen to be one of those club kids, you’ve got approximately 22 brand new opportunities this upcoming summer/fall to immerse yourself in the (literal and figurative) pursuit of unabashed ecstasy that you so valiantly seek, coming in the form of freshly-announced Yaeji tour dates.

For the unfamiliar, Yaeji’s an NYC-born, South Korea-raised house/dance/avant-pop artist with quite a knack for producing what some would correctly identify as “dancefloor burners.” And her recently announced tour dates have been broken up into three legs — or “wads,” as I prefer to call them. If you’d like to educate yourself on all things Yaeji before you make the financial (and/or spiritual) commitment of attending a show, you can purchase or stream her most recent EP (aptly titled EP2) down below.

And if you do in fact decide to hit up one of the upcoming concerts this summer, keep an eye out for yours truly at the NYC one. I’ll be the morose guy in the flannel shirt with the 24 oz can of beer, trying to muster up the courage to join in on all the fun.
