WOMEN w. Ryan Power & The Vacant Lots 10.18.08 (sat)

I think we really lucked out with getting this show. WOMEN, a fresh band out of Alberta, Canada seem to be on the verge of blowing up. Simply  based upon their tour schedule directly following their Burlington play it looks as they are heading in a fine direction.

From Burlington they head straight to NYC for 9! gigs. Some pretty exciting events all across the CMJ sphere. Kicking it off with a gig at the Cake Shop and followed by showcases for Poptartssucktoasted, Terrorbird, Subbacultcha!, Myopenbar.com, Todd P’s , KCRW , The Paste/ R5 Showcase, Bowery Presents & Brooklynvegan.



As soon as they get through their marathon run in NYC they will hit the road for a string of dates with KING KHAN & BBQ SHOW followed by dates with DUNGEN. Lastly they pop across the ocean with                  CHAD VANGAALEN for a UK run.

To add to the fun locals RYAN POWER as well as THE VACANT LOTS will also be supplying some tunes.

The debut album by Women was recorded by label-mate Chad VanGaalen over 4 months on ghettoblasters and old tape machines in his basement, an outdoor culvert and a crawlspace. Sometimes light and spacious, at other times eerie and dense with an ominous weight, this self titled album touches upon Velvet Underground, The Zombies or This Heat while not really having any obvious precursors – a lo-fi masterpiece cloaked in layers of vibrato and guitar wash.
