Xiu Xiu coming to Bennington

Looks as though XIU XIU is going to be hitting up Bennington College on March 20th. I just got the newest album titled Women As Lovers and have been digging it so far. One straight listen thru on my walk to work faired well and I’ll be rocking out to that a bit more in the near future. Interesting cover of Under Pressure (Queen) featuring Michael Gira. Anyone want to go to the show?Looks as though the full tour will be with label mates Thao & The Get Down Stay Down .Had never heard Thao Nguyens stuff but after listening to their stuff just a moment ago I’m having to say I’m totally into it.Going to touch base with the folks down in Bennington to find out the finer points regarding ticket prices, availability and what not. Will try to get that up and out there today sometime before Wu Tang rolls into town.UPDATE:I managed to find out a wee bit about the show. More will follow as things get solidified on Benningtons end. This is what I’ve found so far. All subject to change im assuming.The tix will be at least $10.You will need a guest pass from the security booth upon entering the campus.None of this information is necessarily reliable Xiu Xiu- Under Pressure w. Michael Gira

    Tix for Bennington shows tend to be less than $10 ($5-$6 typically) and are sold at the door. However, Xiu Xiu are bigger than most bands rolling through campus so perhpas they’ll do some advance sales.
