Harlem are on the West Coast as of this writing, catching up with old friends and making new ones in advance of their second album, ‘Hippies’ (LP/CD/digitized bits) coming out on April 6 (April 26 in the UK and Europe).  Though a bunch of new spring dates were just announced (below), we’d like to call special attention to the band’s April 1st show at Austin’s Mohawk, will serve as a record release bash for ‘Hippies’ (if not one of those annual record label stunts where we claim we’re doing a Record Store Day exclusive with Wal-Mart or something of that nature). Cowabunga Babes are on the bill and additional pals will be confirmed shortly.
