OFF! ANNOUNCE ADDITIONAL TOUR DATES, RECORD RELEASE SHOW FOOTAGE ON NOISEY.COM
NEW DATES INCLUDE PITCHFORK FEST, NXNE FESTIVAL, EAST COAST STINT SUPPORTING DINOSAUR JR.
OFF!, the quartet of Keith Morris, Steven McDonald, Dimitri Coats, and Mario Rubalcaba, hot off their ferocious performance at Coachella this weekend (which racked up accolades in New York Times and a feature in LA Times), have announced a slew of additional dates in the coming months. First up is a previously announced week of west coast dates, including the band’s first performances in Portland and Seattle, as well as shows in Vancouver and the Bay Area. In June the band will once again travel to the eastern half of North America for an appearance at Toronto’s NXNE Music & Film Festival and five shows with the legendary Dinosaur Jr, spanning from Boston to Atlanta and including a NYC performance at Terminal 5, with fellow hardcore heavyweights Fucked Up also playing support. Closing out their Summer schedule is an appearance at Chicago’s Pitchfork Music Festival. Full dates are below.
Over the last few weeks some fantastic video segments on the band have made their debut, showcasing the band’s immense live power as well as their distinct sense of humor. As one of the inaugural acts on Vice’s new music video network Noisey.com, OFF!’s tumultuous record release show, which was subjected to a rainstorm and last minute venue change by LAPD, is fully documented in all its sweatbox glory. As with each episode on Noisey, the clip includes five segments, including a short documentary introducing the band and the local music scene, then four segments of uninterrupted performances. Also, last fall the band sat down in Pomona with No Age for an interview that recently debuted on Pitchfork.TV’s online music show Tunnelvision.
