Shearwater touring w/ Dinosaur Jr., playing a one-off at the Empty Bottle

Shearwater @ the Vic in May (more by James Richards IV)
2

Austin’s Shearwater have been touring non-stop since their newest record, Animal Joy, hit stores in February via Sub Pop. The group are set to head out on yet another tour in October, supporting Dinosaur Jr. That tour doesn’t hit Chicago, but Shearwater have scheduled a one-off show during that run– at the Empty Bottle on October 21. Judson Claiborne and Daniel Knox will act as main support, and tickets go on sale this Friday (8/17) at 10AM CST.

Speaking of Dinosaur Jr., as we’ve mentioned many times, they’ll be headed to Champaign-Urbana, IL to perform at the 2012 Pygmalion Music Festival on September 29. Festival passes and individual tickets for their show– with Grizzly Bear, Cloud Nothings, Frankie Rose, and others– are still available.

All Shearwater/Dinosaur Jr. dates and a video for Animal Joy‘s “Immaculate” are below…
