    this show is actually in providence, ri at club hell not richmond.

    unless ac is into going from montreal on 3/11, down to virginia for 3/12 and then doubling back to boston on 3/13….. trust me, it’s in providence, ri.

  2. Any plans to release the go-betweens cover that was mentioned as a preorder bonus to itunes or elsewhere? matador digital single?
