George Lewis Jr. (aka Twin Shadow) @ Mohawk - 9/14/2012
As we mentioned a while back, during the month of September George Lewis Jr. (aka Twin Shadow) has been travelling through Texas as part of a tour in support of his sophomore album 'Confess'. Billed as "Twin Shadow Takes Texas", he's been to El Paso and Dallas, spent two sold-out nights in Austin, and then went on to Houston. He'll finish up in McAllen, TX on Monday night (tonight, 9/17). From GL Jr.:
"Some of our greatest shows in the states have been down in Texas. My favorite thing about it is that you drive long and hard to get to these places, and just beyond the constant van refuels, the violent scribblings on bathroom stall doors, the tumble weeds and scary small town authorities, are adoring fans, who just give you a lot of love. This is my way of saying thanks!"
In addition to the shows, which include Sweden's Niki and the Dove as tour mates, he released a limited-edition 7" of "Run My Heart". From 4AD:
What better way to confess your support for your fans than to launch a pointed run of tour dates directed specifically at one of your most loyal group of supporters? It is with this in mind that Twin Shadow heads to the Lone Star state this September for half a dozen shows, plus in-store performances, radio appearances, etc. To further commemorate this Texas residency, Twin Shadow has created a limited edition 7" which will only be available in Texas at these shows and select Lone Star record stores.
Here are some pictures of Twin Shadow (who have a new bassist) & Niki and the Dove from night one at Mohawk (9/15). More of them and a stream of the 7", below....
