Cold Specks going on tour, playing Schubas


Cold Specks (aka Al Spx) is set to kick off a fall international tour this weekend in Hamburg, Germany. That tour features a short North American run, which hasn’t been announced in full, but includes a Chicago show at Schubas on November 29. Tickets go on sale this Friday (9/21) at noon CST.

Al’s great debut LP, I Predict A Graceful Expulsion, is still in the running for the Mercury Prize. The Canadian-born, London-based singer-songwriter is releasing the new single for her album track “Hector” on October 15. You can check out a live video of that song, as well as a recent La Blogotheque – Take Away Show at the bottom of this post.
