The Week In Tours

For those who’ve been sleeping under a mountain or some other very large rock, there’s a slew of different performers shaking up cities around the globe this week. The nine-man machine from Iceland known as Benni Hemm Hemm will crowd stages all over the US with its savory jazz-pop stylings. Meanwhile, for heart-palpitating dance action, New York-based disco kings Rub-N-Tug shine behind the decks for late-night (or early morning) madness. Electro-punks Crystal Castles take on über-club Fabric and instore mall signings in the UK before reaping vengeance on North America. And ex-glam rock outfit Glass Candy gets swanky with its lo-fi disco from the future. Things are looking good.
