The Wedding Present on tour + vintage show download

Posted September 3rd, 2008 by Eric Greenwood · 1 Comment

The Wedding Present kicks off its US tour in support of El Rey on September 18th in San Diego. I’ve yet to give the new record more than a perfunctory listen, and I haven’t seen the band since the Saturnalia tour in 1996, so I’m hoping to remedy both soon. Anway, the sound of indie has a vintage Weddoes show from the Watusi tour in 1994 available for download, which should put you in the mood.
