Teenage Fanclub All Through the Night

I am certain that any band’s artistic longetivity can be directly correlated to the eager devotion of their fandom. (In this case “eager devotion” is putting it mildly. Beloved Scottish rockers Teenage Fanclub are definitely possessed of that quality. Good news then for followers of the band; After an extended hiatus between releases, (Man-Made 2005) Teenage Fanclub are back. You might recall the power poppers recently released their ninth LP, Shadows, to universal critical acclaim. Thankfully, the group has announced a North American tour for the fall.

There are four Canadian dates currently booked: a two-night stand at Toronto's legendary Horseshoe Tavern, as well as shows in Montreal and Vancouver. For West coast fans looking for something truly special it might be worth it to organize a road trip to Seattle or Portland, where the band will be joined by Superchunk and Telekinesis. (Thank you Anjo for the heads up on that one.) But the icing on the proverbial rock n’ roll cake… For Teenage Fanclub’s Brooklyn date, they'll be playing with fellow Glaswegian fan favourites Belle and Sebastian.
