Built to Spill @ BV-SXSW 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)
36

Long-running indie rock favorites Built to Spill will be heading out on a large fall U.S. tour in October. That tour features a bunch of different openers, including Lee Ranaldo & the Dust (who play the Empty Bottle on October 13), but Slam Dunk are along for most of the ride. Doug Martsch and co. will tag Chicago for a performance at Metro on November 14 with Slam Dunk and The Warm Hair. Tickets go on sale TODAY (Friday, July 26) at noon CST.

BtS' most recent album, There Is No Enemy, arrived in the fall of 2009. For Record Store Day 2013, they released a remastered 2xLP version of 2000's Live. I grabbed a copy, and it never leaves the turntable for too long.
