Plants And Animals Plot Tour, Returning To Bottom Of The Hill

Picture from the HAD Archive

The last we heard from Plants And Animals (aside from our 2008 best-of list) was in an opening slot at Bottom Of The Hill last October. We said it then, and we'll say it now: this is not a band that should be in an opening slot. They simply deliver so solidly, and bring so much to every live show, that putting them anywhere but as headliners is a waste.

Well, clearly others agree with us: after rounding out the winter with a few more opening slots, the band has planned a new headlining tour that crosses the US over the course of March. For San Francisco, that means a headlining slot at Bottom Of The Hill on March 14th. For the rest of you, well, see below.

We're secretly hoping this new tour will be accompanied by some new material, but even if it's more of Parc Avenue, well, we'll still be extremely pleased. So psyched.
