Rough Gem

Back in December I wrote about a wonderful sell-out show at the Knitting Factory where the band Islands (ex-Unicorns) were previewing new material. I also promised to let you know when that band and new material would finally find a domestic distributor. Well, that time is now. Return to the Sea will be released by Equator on April 4th. The first single, "Rough Gem" is making the rounds and I'd love to share it with you...

Islands "Rough Gem"

As you might be able to tell, I'm very excited. Do you think Islands are tired of seeing "Islands" always followed by "ex-Unicorns" in parathenses? Do you think they ever thought about changing their official name to "Islands (ex-Unicorns)"? Anyway, here are a few upcoming East Coast tour dates:

03/07 - Boston, MA - The Roxy
03/09 - Washington, D.C. - 9:30 Club
03/10 - New York City, NY - Webster Hall
03/11 - Philadelphia, PA - Starlight Ballroom

c'mon Josh - put some Midwest/Colorado dates in there too!!! I loved the unicorns (although they were already disbanded by the time I heard them) and can't wait for a full release from Islands. Plus, I really liked the hamburger chain called islands - they had a great pinapple teryaki burger.

They don't have Midwest dates- unless you count 03/15 - Dallas, TX - Gypsy Ballroom. Total bummer.
