The Pattern Stencil In A Summer American Tour





The Pattern, the Oakland five-piece who don't believe shampoo or clean jeans is a necessity, will kick off a month-long tour (like a karate kick to the face) this Friday at the Spaceland in Los Angeles. The 18-date tour will culminate at the Meow Meow in Portland on June 21, and then the final hooray at the FREE Siren Festival on world famous Coney Island on July 19. The A-list of indie rock lifesavers scheduled to shove a fistful of free fucking fireworks down the throats of scencesters from all points of the underglobe include The Kills, !!!, Sahara Hotnights, Hot Hot Heat, The Datsuns, Modest Mouse and more. The Pattern filled our brims with mega cool garage sounds to the rim in 2002 with Real Feelness, a frantic explosion of raw, powerful rock grooves, resulting in a melee of boogie down dance moves from everyone, everywhere, every time. Singer Chris Applegren is also the funky boss of Lookout Records!, the place where The Pattern hang their (mesh) hats, in addition to Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, The Oranges Band, and Small Brown Bike.
