Tour Math: Jealous Girlfriends + $15 = Nada

Matthew Caws at Union Hall w/ Joe McGinty (July 9, 2007)
Matthew Caws at Union Hall with Joe McGinty

Hey, I was perusing the Union Hall event calendar the other day and I noticed that The Jealous Girlfriends + Very Special Guests are playing on October 12 for $15 (buy tickets here). Now $15 seems a little steep for The Jealous Girlfriends by themselves, (no disrespect intended), so I did a little more investigating into the matter. Upon closer inspection I noticed that the Jealous Girlfriends are playing the very next night in Philadelphia with Brooklyn’s very own Nada Surf… I’ll let you do the math.

Here’s a little more on the Nada Surf tour from their MySpace blog:

We’re happy to announce Nada Surf’s first headlining tour in quite some time. Please check out the dates in the Tour section.

This run finds the band returning to some of their favorite clubs (Schubas!!Cat’s Cradle!!) and also playing in some cities/states they haven’t visited in a long, long time (hello Florida). The shows will also give the band an opportunity to play some songs from their next album which is currently scheduled for early ’08.
