At the risk of beating you over the head with this information, it seems worth our while to remind you that tonight marks the much-anticipated debut of Alan Palomo's newest project, Neon Indian, which has garnered praise from outlets far beyond us and the normal local music press.
Tonight's We Shot JR-sponsored show, which will also feature Darktown Strutters, Kashioboy and Vulgar Fashion and, an as-yet-undertermined DJ, was originally scheduled to take place in the basement of J&J's Pizza, but for whatever reason, earlier this week, the show was moved to Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios. The show marks the launch of Neon Indian's world tour, the details of which were announced yesterday (for a full list of dates, cities and venues, check the schedule after the jump) and which will, this weekend, find the Palomo and fellow Neon Indian members Jason Faries, Ronny Gierhart and videographer Alicia Scardett aplaying the super-gorgeous confines of Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado, as part of the Monolith Festival.
Should all make for quite the exciting night/weekend. Oh, and in case you still needed more convincing on Neon Indian's legitimacy, head on over to Chris Cantalini's Gorilla Vs. Bear blog today, where he's showing off the latest Neon Indian remix, in which the band offers up a phenomenal tripped-out take on Au Revoir Simone's "Another Likely Story."
