Pains of Being Pure at Heart Tour

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, which formed in early 2007, is known for its sweet boy/girl vocals, fuzzy melodies, and hard-hitting drums. Having just released a 10-song self-titled debut album and completed a tour of Sweden, the New York foursome will take on the rest of Europe and return Stateside just in time to make numerous appearances at SXSW.

TPOBPAH with play a dizzying 10 shows in four days during the festival, ranging from a lunchtime in-store at Waterloo Records to an afternoon gig at the famous Emo's Main Room, to a nighttime jaunt on South Salinas Street. Following Austin, the band will make its way down the East Coast and jump over to London for the European part of the tour. Catch them at one of the following stops:

"05/20 - Glasgow, England - Captain's Rest"
You ignorant cunts! Glasgow is in Scotland. Scotland and England are two separate countries, both of which are in the Britain/United Kingdom. Being from Scotland means you are British, not English. Glaswegians and the Scottish are not English! We are a separate country. It’s like calling a Californian a Canadian, only vastly more offensive.
