The New Pornographers Announce New Tour Dates

The New Pornographers will dust off the passports and gas up the van for a 16-date trek across North America this June. The Canadian popsters, whose Mass Romantic on Mint Records was on nearly everyoneís TOP 5 lists in 2000, released their Matador debut, Electric Version this past Tuesday (5/6). The tour kicks off in Salt Lake City on June 2, an accompanying the hockey loving Canucks will be The Organ, a Vancouver-based quintet who recent banged out their debut EP Sinking Hearts on Mint Records. Also, be on the lookout for a possible glimpse of singer Neko Caseís goodies in Playboy. The Heff operated magazine recently asked online readers ìwhat indie rock chickî would they like to see showcased in the glossy, stain resistant book, and Case has already received 32% of the votes.
