On May 10, Leggy is playing at The Thompson House, sandwiched in between headliner L.A. Witch and opener The Slippery Lips.  Assuming the venue is still in operation then, I hope Leggy doesn't emerge too scarred by the experience of playing there.

Leggy is in the swing of things at SXSW. They're doing 7 shows there, of which 2 are an official SXSW showcase, and 5 are in places not officially sanctioned by SXSW (but happily organizing gigs while riding SXSW's coattails).

From what I'm hearing, it must be quite the insane but oh-so-enjoyable experience... Ah, to be young!!

I was going to reach out to you when I saw that Southampton was on the schedule. Any intel would be appreciated so I can share it with the girls.

To be honest, I think they are a bit over their heads right now. My daughter has been to the UK many times, in fact studied at Kings College for 5 months back in 2011, but this is a whole different ballgame. They'll be driving around on the tour to all these places. I am an experienced driver and, frankly, would be terrified at the idea of driving "UK style" a/k/a "on the wrong side of the road". And that's just one of their challenges. But obviously it's a great opportunity to advance their musical career.

Ooo - Southampton and Brighton! :)

I love Chastity Belt's newest album. Leggy with them - great double bill!

Old pub. Very old pub. Been doing concerts since the 60's and has featured some very big names along the way. (Radiohead, Manics, Oasis) I'm guessing a couple of hundred capacity. Respected venue. Near the Saints stadium in an area that used to be WELL dodgy but seems to have cleaned itself up somewhat. I have no idea who owns or who is running the place these days but it was always VERY accommodating for artists and punters alike when I was running the Virgin store in Southampton. There, Talking Heads or The Brook are probably the three best venues for a band like Leggy in the city.

Opening all of those dates for a solid, veteran band like Shonen Knife is a great opportunity for Leggy.  They stand to make a lot of fans across the pond.

Agreed.

By the way Trash Radio's Ken Katlin is the one who made the initial connection between Leggy and Damnably Records! Bless and love that guy.

I will be at a couple of the UK shows: April 25 in London (the album release party, although I have no idea how that is going to turn out, since nobody knows them in London), and the gigs in Edinburgh and Glasgow when they open for Shonen Knife.

Whatever happens, it'll be an adventure for them (at times into the unknown). Ahh, to be young!

How exciting for them - and you too! Have fun and remember: You can sleep when you're dead. ;)

..and on the very next day, May 11, Leggy will be playing at Ace Of Cups in Columbus, after Brat Curse and before headliner Corners.  At least according to the AofC website...

Meanwhile, sporadic reports I'm getting indicate that the UK tour is going well. The CD apparently is selling very well at shows.

The Leggy girls are currently in Southampton and terrorizing the neighborhood. I hope those local Christian boys have been locked up and shielded accordingly ;-)
