AA Bondy tours east coast with label-mates, The Walkmen

After just doing a bang-up job on a little west coast swing built around LA's Fuck Yeah Fest and ending with the successfully packed Buddyhead + FYF presented show at the legendary Spaceland, AA Bondy is heading back out on the road this week. Starting next Tuesday, October 5th, Mr. Bondy will be touring down the east coast (most dates find him opening for his Fat Possum label-mates The Walkmen) before calling it a year, packing up and moving from Woodstock, New York to the capitol of the world (aka Los Angeles, California) and recording his third full length album! Which judging from the five or six new songs I heard him play live at those left-coast shows, it's promising to be his best effort yet. And I can honest say Mr. Bondy is not only one of the best lyricists of our time but he's also one of the most literate men in rock n' roll. A title which Noel Gallagher claims is held by none other than Morrissey, and I'm never one to argue with Noel.

If you live in any of the cities listed below, don't miss this man live. He's the best at what he does! Fact!

In the meantime if you need more Bondy, make sure to bookmark his Myspace page, buy his records (click here to get em from Amazon and here to get em from the evil empire of Apple who happen to have bonus tracks), check out his "13 Questions" on Buddyhead.com (which feature some free mp3s) and check out these videos below that (the lovely) Vanessa Campbell and myself shot.
