New Zealand indie rockers Cut Off Your Hands will perform at the Oasis on Thursday night April 30th, making them officially the most geographically-distant band we've ever had here at the O. (The record was The Twilight Sad from Glasgow, Scotland!) These guys have performed with the likes of Ra Ra Riot, Bloc Party, The Datsuns, We Are Scientists, Ratatat and The Wombats. Opening acts will be announced soon.
Our dear friend Tim Easton will return to the Oasis for the first time in over two years to perform songs from his new album, Porcupine, on Saturday, May 9th. The last time Tim performed, the place was jam-packed and Tim held his own along with New London heavyweights The Paul Brockett Roadshow and Sean Spellman of Quiet Life. This time around, Tim will perform (full band intact this time!) and will share the stage again with The PBR Band! Needless to say, we're thrilled! If you are a fan of alt-country, y'allternative or whatever you wanna call it, this is the show for you!
Sub Pop Records signees Pretty & Nice will make their first ever appearance in New London on Saturday, June 6th here at the Oasis. We've been spinning their first single "Tora Tora Tora" like crazy here! The Boston trio will be joined by DC's own Middle Distance Runner. These guys have been getting major underground buzz for a couple years now, so it would be no surprise to see these guys blow up fairly soon. The press comparisons to Blur definitely don't hurt either! More exciting details coming soon about this show!
