The War on Drugs Close Out 2012 w/Sold Out Shows at JB’s Dec. 30 & 31

The War on Drugs Close Out 2012 w/Sold Out Shows at JB’s Dec. 30 & 31

This year saw The War on Drugs continuing their touring ways in support of 2011’s critically-acclaimed album Slave Ambient and performing at huge events like Lollapalooza and the CBGB Festival. Adam Granduciel recently mentioned that he has booked some studio time down south in March to begin recording new material, which is always good to hear. But judging by the time it took for their most recent LP to be finished, who knows when it will see the light of day? I’m guessing that only the rock gods do. Well, before all that occurs, the band will be wrapping up 2012 with two SOLD OUT shows at Johnny Brenda’s that will see a portion of the ticket proceeds going to MANNA. Tonight they’ll be joined by Alex Bleeker and the Freaks (featuring members of Real Estate) and Arc in Round, who also had a good year thanks to their self-titled LP being released via La Société Expéditionnaire. The War on Drugs’ New Year’s Eve bash will feature performances by the impressive Avery Rosewater and the explosive guitar-laden dirge of Purling Hiss. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford St., 9pm, Dec. 30 & Dec. 31 SOLD OUT, 21+ - Bill McThrill
