The Week In Tours

Spring vibes are in the air, and your favorite artists are ready to capture your hearts, energy, and cash flow for the next few months. With summer’s oppressive heat just around the corner, here are some crucial acts that will pull kiddies and clubgoers away from their almighty air-conditioners.

Factory Records’ Section 25 returns after two decades of hibernation, with its utterly untouchable dirty-disco. Meanwhile, !!! loudens up with a three-month world tour in support of Myth Takes (Warp). Brooklyn-based electro-punks Matt and Kim embark upon their first headlining tour after assaulting audiences across the states supporting Girl Talk a few months ago, and after debuting at Number Two on the UK charts last week, Maxïmo Park preps its penetration of Stateside’s pop parameters.
