Amen Dunes touring, playing free show at the Empty Bottle


NYC-based group Amen Dunes— the project of songwriter Damon McMahon– have an expansive fall international tour ahead of them. They’ll begin that run with a couple of US shows in early-September, including a performance at the Hopscotch Music Festival in Raleigh, NC, and then will spend the remainder of that month and early-October touring throughout Europe. When they return stateside, Damon and co. have a couple of shows with Godspeed You! Black Emperor (who were recently in Chicago to play Pitchfork Fest) and then a free one at the Empty Bottle on October 15. E+ (who play the Hideout this weekend) and Sonoi are also on the bill. No RSVP needed.

Damon’s most recent release, the Ethio Covers 7″, arrived in May. You can stream all four tracks at the bottom of this post. The 7″ was self-released in a limited pressing of 300. Copies are still available for purchase.
