Slip into Spring
The Slip will kick off its three show New Years Eve run on Friday night at Lupos in Providence. The group, which has garnered a number of slots on Best of 2006 lists for its latest studio effort, Eisenhower, will close out the calendar year with shows at Northampton, MAs Pearl Street on Saturday the 30th and then on Sunday the 31st at Brooklyn’s North Six. In addition, the group has just announced a first series of 2007 performances which will carry the band up and down the east coast. The first gig looks to be a one-off on February 7 at Castaways in Ithaca, NY, after which the trio will begin a tour proper on February 23 at the Paradise in Boston. The Slip will then route to the south, eventually touching down at Langerado before traveling through the Midwest and on into the northeast with its final confirmed date on the cusp of the spring: March 18 at the Rex Theatre in Pittsburgh, PA.
