The Ballantynes Announce March West Coast Tour!

TourPoster3A busy year at home brought The Ballantynes into the daylight at Squamish Live! and Rifflandia, and found them opening for garage greats like the Oblivians and Roky Erickson, but on the cusp of Spring with their latest LA-TI-DA Records release making its rounds, Vancouver’s soul-drenched seven piece find themselves itching to tour on their new “Liquor Store Gun Store Pawn Shop Church” EP. The 12 date tour winds its way along the West Coast March 15th – 29th, kicking off in Spokane, WA with dates down to Long Beach, before creeping back on up for a finale in Seattle. With wanderlust, homes away from home, and warmer weather lighting up their eyes, the septet are eager to revisit the sites and the company that dot their album covers and echo through their songs respectively.

Send them off Saturday March 1st with The Shivas and Calvin Love at Electric Owl Social Club with Jonathan Toubin’s SOUL CLAP DANCE OFF!

Dates below:

Saturday March 15th – Spokane, WA – Mootsy’s

Sunday March 16th – Boise, ID – The Crux

Monday March 17th – Reno, NV – Singers

Tuesday March 18th – Sacramento, CA – The Press Club

Thursday March 20th – Santa Rosa, CA – A PIZZA PUNX JOINT

Friday March 21st – Oakland, CA – Eli’s Mile High Club

Saturday March 22nd – San Jose, CA – The Blank Club

Sunday March 23rd – Long Beach, CA – Alex’s Bar

Monday March 24th – Los Angeles, CA – The Redwood Bar

Wednesday March 26th – San Fransisco, CA – Hemlock Tavern

Thursday March 27th – Portland, OR – The East End

Saturday March 29th – Seattle, WA – Rendezvous

The Jay Vons West Coast Weekend!

Here at L-T-D, we’re getting way excited about the upcoming Jay Vons 45! Cause for celebration, right? Right. Therefore, it was only fitting that we got the boys out west for a trio of release parties!

First stop? Seattle!

The Jay Vons jet-set into Sea-Tac this Thursday to play The Sunset with their friends Red Jacket Mine (fresh from their appearance at this year’s B’shoot) and The Tripwires (ex and current YFF, Model Rockets, and Mudhoney). Event details here.

Where to next? Friday night in Vancouver for a very specal edition of the East Van Soul Club:

For the ever-attending choir, ‘scuse us while we preach to the unconverted: September EVSC events go off like roman candles. And that’s without the double whammy of having The Ballantynes and The Jay Vons kicking the night off on Friday the goddamn 13th! TGIF, indeed. All the details are here. With school back in session and student loans being spent indiscriminately, this one is going to pack out early.

Finally, the event that got the whole ball rolling: this year’s edition of Rifflandia!

Now in its sixth (!) year, Rifflandia is taking place in venues across Victoria, BC, Thurs Sept 12-Sun, Sept 15th. Boasting an eclectic roster that includes Courtney Love, Big Boi, Edward Sharpe, DFA, and The Orb (for all you dancing types), this year’s fall classic continues to challenge the notion of Victoria’s rep as “home of the newlywed & nearly-dead” The Jay Vons headline our Saturday night showcase over at the Event Center. For those of you with wristbands or night passes: honestly, and without hyperbole, get down to the VEC earlier than later. This spot will have a line up down the stairs before you’re two beers deep. Special thanks to the folks at Atomique Productions for their care and support of this night!

It’s safe to say there’ll be a two day hangover in the wake of this one, so we’ll pair up those JVs pre-orders with the Maniac pre-orders and start getting them out to Singles Club Subscribers starting on Tuesday, Sept 17th.

We’ll check in with you all then as well…lots more news coming down the pike….until then!

 

Back to Civilization, but Still Out of Control….

On behalf of The Ballantynes, a big thanks to everyone who made Squamish such a great time! Shout outs to Gumby and the wine-smoothie chick! Day-makers for sure.

Tons of recaps to kill your coffee break: Vancouver Sun, Georgia Straight, and the Vancouver Weekly all weighing in.

And speaking of loveable characters from our youth, are we in Pee Wee’s Playhouse? Cause I swear the word of the day is FESTIVALS!

peewee

Next stop? Victoria, BC for Rifflandia 2013!
latida-rifflandia

A whole pack of us are getting together for a big LA-TI-DA party and SHOWCASE Saturday, September 14th at the Victoria Events Centre: Needles//Pins, The Ballantynes, and all the way from Brooklyn, NY, The Jay Vons! Doors at 8:30 PM.

If you’ve doing the wristband or night pass thing, we recommend getting down there early; if previous years at VEC are any indication, it’s going to be a busy, busy night.

Then grab whatever soothes your hang over and hit Royal Athletic Park at NOON on Sunday, September 15th where The Ballantynes will be warming up the MAIN STAGE for dudes like Big Boi and Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros.

We coudn’t be more excited for Riff. Of the many, many logs in the proverbial campfire this summer, this one burns pretty bright.

Burning bright? Burning out? Out of our minds? WE MUST BE because the ball is rolling for FALL DOWN / GET DOWN 2013 November 14th-17th! We’ve set the dates, mark them on your calendars, and we promise all will be revealed soon!

Stay tuned, because we’ve got MORE EXCITING LA-TI-DA ANNOUNCEMENTS coming this month!
