Brooklyn indie rockers Total Slacker are joining Miniature Tigers and Bear Hands on a spring co-headlining tour, with a stop in Ann Arbor on Thursday night at the venerable Blind Pig.
Total Slacker has hit the ground running this year with a new full-length, their sophomore release, Slip Away on Black Bell Records/ADA.
Total Slacker has a thing for the 90s. But rest assured, their new record isn’t the sort of hack revivalism that’ll make you want to burn your copy of Bleach. For the album, Total Slacker dug deep into the crates, and came up with something that sounds like Hum and Skywave a bunch of other bands that’ll draw blank stares from nu-gaze numbnuts. Most importantly, they retain their original ethos—to blur the lines between the genuine and the satirical, the earnest and the sarcastic.
Check out this live clip of Keep "The Ships at Bay" and "Out of Body Experience."
Of course Miniature Tigers and Bear Hands are also bringing some new heat with
Cruel Runnings and Distraction, respectively. This promises to be a legit triple-threat bill, so you'll wanna get there early to check out the whole deal. It will probably be the best $12 you've spent this year, save for maybe that White Castle Crave Sack you bought last month.
Doors open at 9pm. Grab your tickets here.
