Oslo on May 8 at Revolver

Bergen on May 9 at Garage

Stockholm on May 13 at Debaser

Malmö on May 14, but place is not yet announced.

For those who can read Norwegian, Reidar Engesbak in Blikk has interviewed JD Samson here.

Slackers view melder at de sagnomsuste canadiske Lesbians On Ecstacy stopper innom både København og Malmö på sin Europa-turné i mai.

Som Slacker forteller fikk Lezzies On X - som de kalles til hverdags - kultstatus tilbake i 2004 da de var med Le Tigre på verdensturne. Samme år slapp de sitt debutalbum med harde dansbare elektronikatolkninger av låter fra lesbeikoner som Melissa Etheridge, kd lang og Indigo Girls. Siden den gang det har de sluppet album som Giggles In The Dark, og senest We Know You Know.

6. mai er de å se på Loppen på Christiania i København, og 7. mai på Queer Base i Malmö, der Merde Niluap og The Hardliqour Men varmer opp.

“Mycket hjärta att vänta när Bernie Bankrupt, Veronique Mystique, Pretty Ricky och Fruity Frankie går på scenen”, skriver Slacker. Det er bare å glede seg, hvis man er så heldig å få billett!
