BISHOP ALLEN And THE DONKEYS To Play Schuba’s Tomorrow Never Knows Festival in Chicago

BISHOP ALLEN and THE DONKEYS will share the stage on Sunday, January 18 as part of the grand finale of Schuba’s Tomorrow Never Knows Festival in Chicago. Tickets for the show are available HERE. The five-day festival will also feature artists like Department of Eagles, Cursive and Mile Benjamin Anthony Robinson.

As part of the Windy City visit, The Donkeys will also play an in-store performance at Chicago’s Reckless Records at 3 p.m. on the day of the show. It will no doubt bring some much needed West Coast warmth to the dead of winter.

Bishop Allen Perform for Fuel TV

Bishop Allen stopped by the Fuel TV studios a little while back and performed two songs for The Daily Habit. The band plays a favorite from their last record, The Broken String, as well as a new one entitled “Shanghaied” which will be appearing on their new album coming in 2009.

Check the videos out HERE.

Bishop Allen share new video from Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist

When Dead Oceans released The Broken String we certainly did not expect there to be a Bishop Allen video featuring Michael Cera (Juno, Arrested Development, Superbad). As it turns out, the new video for “Middle Management” (from The Broken String and now the soundtrack to Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist) is culled from various scenes of Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, which means that Bishop Allen and Michael Cera appear in the same video! We are thrilled with the end result, and can’t wait to see Bishop Allen perform on the big screen. For those keeping score, Nick’s (Michael Cera) band is opening for Bishop Allen in the film, and they make a cameo. And, yes, that is “Middle Management” you have heard in the movie’s trailer.

Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist comes out Oct. 3rd and the soundtrack (featuring Vampire Weekend, Band of Horses, Modest Mouse, Devendra Banhart, Bishop Allen and more) is in stores now.

Bishop Allen announce fall tour, appear in Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist

Bishop Allen are currently holed up in their make-shift Brooklyn recording studio, writing and recording the follow-up to their 2007 album, The Broken String. Tentatively planned for release in early 2009, the band plans to road test many of the new songs on a US tour in November 2008.

Touring and recording are not the only exciting things happening in the world of Bishop Allen. The band makes a cameo appearance in the major motion picture release Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, which stars Michael Cera (Arrested Development, Superbad, Juno) and Kat Dennings (40 Year-old Virgin). The band appears in the movie during a scene where Nick and Norah first meet. The trailer for this movie was just released, and features Bishop Allen’s song “Middle Management” as well as a brief glimpse of the band onstage during the movie. Songs by Modest Mouse, Vampire Weekend, We Are Scientists, Band of Horses, Devendra Banhart and more are featured alongside Bishop Allen in the film.
