Guards @ NYC's the Slipper Room, November 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
5

NYC outfit Guards welcomed their super catchy, debut full-length LP, In Guards We Trust, earlier this year and did quite a bit of touring in support of it. After they play Coachella this weekend (and next), Guards will hit the road once again, with UK group Palma Violets. As discussed, that tour includes a performance at Schubas on May 1. Advance tickets for the Chicago show are still available. Both acts will also be back in Chicago on Sunday, August 4 to perform at Lollapalooza 2013.

All Guards dates and their brand new video for the LP track "Ready To Go" are below...
