Members ABX and STV SLV have a bunch of upcoming tour dates, including a stint at SXSW and two hometown shows. Towards the end of this month (on February 23rd) they'll act as main support for Wugazi, at their previously announced Bottom Lounge late show. Tickets are still available. The duo will also headline the Empty Bottle on March 31st, with support from DJ Dylan J. Peterson and MC Rota. As noted on their website, but not by the venue, ShowYouSuck is also on the bill.
