sOuth | New Record, Tour (Union Hall, Merc), Ticket Giveaway!


UK band sOuth (who were the next big thing a few years ago if I’m not mistaken) are back in the news again with a new record entitled You Are Here (April 29) and a North American tour. They’ll be kicking off their US tour on Saturday, April 26 at Union Hall, then making a quick little detour across the river to Maxwell’s on Sunday before heading back to The Mercury Lounge on Tuesday, April 29 for their final New York show. The good news is I’m giving a pair of tickets to The Mercury Lounge show to a random person who emails me at with the name of their favorite sOuth song. Winners will be notified first thing Monday morning.
