Silver Jews Coming To The Fillmore In September

Hot on the heels of their new disc Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea, Silver Jews are out and about on tour. The band will be at The Fillmore on September 25th, right after Spoon finishes up their three night run. This is good news - and a sure sign that frontman David Berman is continuing to enjoy his newfound propensity for live performance. We haven't gotten to hear much of the new record (Drag City pulled out of eMusic), but by many accounts it's got a feel of being boiler-plate Silver Jews. That is to say: better than most records, but not a hightlight of the catalogue. That being said, the promo track on Drag City's web site (see below) is damn fine, and we're pretty sure we'll be picking this one up in the next week or two. Tickets are on-sale this Sunday at 10 AM.
