Phosphorescent to Tour with The National This Fall

Picture 7(photo by Kmeron)

In May, Phosphorescent performed next door to Other Music in Manhattan along with Sharon Van Etten and The Antlers as part of an improptu concert series currated by The National that led up to the release of their new albumĀ High Violet. In an empty retail space that formerly housed Tower Records, Phosphorescent played a half hour set consisting of a sprawling, improvisational re-envisioning of “Los Angeles” off of their new albumĀ Here’s To Taking It Easy. Unfortunately after the set in classic New York City fashion, both Matthew’s motorcycle and the band’s van were slapped with parking tickets, a bummer of an end to an otherwise fun event. Well, karma has a way of rewarding those who wait, as The National have now invited Phosphorescent to join them on their European tour this fall. Phosphorescent will join The National for the majority of their shows in both mainland Europe, England, and Ireland starting November 11. You can also catch Phosphorescent here in the States for a select number of West Coast dates in mid-October including appearances at the Treasure Island Festival in San Francisco, and the City Arts Festival in Seattle. Phosphorescent will also be capping off the year with a headlining show in their hometown of New York, at the Bowery Ballroom on December 10. Check out the full tour dates after the jump.
