The Young are taking a short break from putting finishing touches on their 2nd album — and first for Matador — with a bunch of shows on the West Coast. Around the time of Matador’s 21st anniversary shows in Vegas going on sale, we received brutal, vicious criticism from locals who felt their cultural hotbed was routinely being passed over by our touring bands. OK, then. The Young are playing Vegas’ Beauty Bar (perhaps the place where the term “truth in advertising” originated) and I fully expect several hundred of the city’s most passionate music fans to be in attendance.
(I also believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and that the Planet Of The Apes movies are a prophecy).
