Moon Duo at The Harley, 2nd September

Yep, it’s that time already. We’re not even into April yet and we’re already well underway with some seriously exciting shows for autumn.

Our first Harley show of the new term will come from San Fransiscans Moon Duo. Made up of one-part Wooden Shjips (WS’ guitarist Ripley Johnson), the band’s hazy, fuzzed-up space-rock has produced three seriously special records so far. We can’t wait to welcome them to the Harley stage.

The band will play on 2nd September, and tickets for the show are onsale now.

See the full details over on the Facebook event.

Ezra Furman at The Harley, 30th April

We’re very excited to be able to welcome the awesome Ezra Furman to The Harley this April. The Chicagoan and his band The Boyfriends will play live in support of Ezra’s fifth album Day Of The Dog, which is out now.

Making a classic, Velvet Underground-tinged take on rock & roll, Ezra Furman’s music has earned him fans from 6Music to The Guardian. It also just happens that Day Of The Dog was one of our favourite records of 2013.

Right now, he is one of the best songwriters around. He rocks, he connects, he haunts and he kills. These days, he usually plays with his band The Boy-Friends. He’s one of our finest rock & roll fools, heart open wide and fangs bared. Keep your eyes peeled, ladies and gents. He’s far from finished.

Tickets for the show are onsale now from here or with no booking fee from The Harley, The Wick at Both Ends, Record Collector and The Old Sweet Shop.

So, Macaulay Culkin is part of a band called The Pizza Underground. They play pizza-themed covers of Velvet Underground songs. And now they’re playing at The Harley. No, really.

See:
The Pizza Underground finally gets around to doing what we’ve all been thinking about for years: rewriting Velvet Underground songs to be about pizza. Band-members Matt Colbourn, Deenah Vollmer, Austin Kilham, Phoebe Kreutz and Macaulay Culkin will burn your mouth with low-fi hits like “All the Pizza Parties” (All Tomorrow’s Parties), “Pizza, It Hurts” (Venus in Furs), and “Take a Bite of the Wild Slice” (Walk on the Wild Side”). The band’s “Fresh to Your Door Tour” starts making deliveries to the U.S. in March.

“Pizza, It Hurts”! As committed devotees to a tenuous pun at Harley Live, we are 100% on board with the project. See also: the entire Twisted Burger Company menu.

Tickets are onsale from Friday 7th March from here or with no booking fee from The Harley, The Wick at Both Ends, Record Collector and The Old Sweet Shop. We’re strongly expecting this to sell out, so if you’re not going to be at Primavera watching St. Vincent, get your ticket quick to come and see…this.
