Stars Playing Town Hall Tonight | Touring with Magnet


Stars, as you may recall, are on tour now in support of their new record, In Our Bedroom After the War (Arts & Crafts). They’ll be playing tonight at the Town Hall with New Buffalo and then making their way across the US and into Canada. Joining them for part of their tour, will be Norway’s Magnet, aka Even Johansen. Magnet has a new record out now called The Simple Life (Filter) and was supposed to play some shows at Joe’s Pub in New York Friday and Saturday, but they were cancelled at the last minute. Largely a solo effort in the past, Johansen will be touring this time around with a 5-piece band. The New York dates will be rescheduled soon hopefully.

Magnet Fun Fact: The Simple Life was released earlier this year throughout Europe, including Norway, where it was the #1 album week of release. To celebrate the album’s arrival, Johansen played 40,000 feet on an airplane flying from Oslo to Reykjavik, breaking the world record for highest performance ever accomplished.
