Shows this week: Fucked Up * Big Business * Man Man and more!

Welcome to this week's list of Solid PR bands performing around the world. This week, we've highlighted two shows in particular that are absolutely mindblowing. If you live in or around NYC, this is your lucky day:


Tuesday, June 19th - BIG BUSINESS @ The Knitting Factory in NYC (w/ Panthers)
Big Business has just had to cancel (and reschedule) a nice bulk of dates after Friday's show in Baltimore. Why? Because they've been hand-picked to open a f*ck-load of US and Canadian dates w/ almighty psych-rock legends, TOOL! You heard right kids, Big Business will be touring w/ mother-fucking TOOL! holy shit. And the last show of the tour is in Jersey, how stoked am I? A proper announcement about these sure-to-be unforgettable appearances will be made this week. If you live on the East Coast and have a chance to catch the band on the last handful of headlining dates, don't fuck up, you can tell your kids you saw them when. Congratulations Big Business. Hard work and being awesome really does pay off.

Friday, June 22nd - FUCKED UP @ 538 Johnson Ave in Brooklyn (w/ Dust Heads)
FUCKED UP haven't been to the NYC area in way too long. Last time, their Mercury Lounge appearance w/ ca-USE co-MOTION left this fan w/ a split lip and two chipped teeth, and a beautiful smile to accompany the entire experience. If you're ready to take part in what punk rock and hardcore music is REALLY about, come to this show. To witness FUCKED UP live is the equivalent of saying 'fuck the system' after a full week of work. The FUCKED UP live show is an unparalleled experience. Some go to mosh hard, some take it as a spiritual experience, either way, it's one of the most beautiful spectacles music has seen in many years. Remember the first time you felt like music was important and could make you feel something real? FUCKED UP is what you were talking about.
