Mark Gardener Again To Tour States, This Time Plugged In

Shoegaze hero Mark Gardener is returning to North America for his second tour this year. After such a strong response to his solo shows, featuring new songs and Ride favorites, the ex-Ride leader is bringing along Oxford mates Goldrush along for his mini-US tour. The band will open up for him, then join him as his backing band for more Gardener solo material and Ride hits. The tour kicks off in Toronto on the forever-etched date of 9/11 and the first set of dates will cease on September 20. There is a rumored NYC show on 9/21, then Gardener will head into the studio in Buffalo for a few weeks before heading out again on some West Coast dates. Check the dates below, and I implore you, if were a fan of the shoegazing scene, or just want to know what all the fuss was about, donít allow yourself to miss these shows. They were THAT good in the spring.
