(New England) Patriots are Headed Out on Tour!!


I love watching the Patriots. There’s just something about getting together with friends, having a few beers, cramming into a small room and getting all sweaty and rambunctious as mic chords tangle around your feet and you’re swept up in the jagged hailstorm of an ear splitting set. Sorry did you think I was talking about something else?? I’m talking about the in your face, crushing noise rock of Boston’s own (New England) Patriots. A Pats show is an assault on your senses. A amalgamation of eccentric story telling slammed by gnarled guitar strings and outrageous tempo shifts that recall the Boston Massacre more than Monday Night Football. It’s violent, poetic and frankly kind of frightening so why keep it all here in Beantown? Sometimes you gotta spread the wealth (and the fear), so the band is headed around the country this April and are bringing a new tour tape with them (only 75 copies!!) so you can relive your experience over and over again. The boys started things off on Wednesday in VT and are headed down the coast to Florida stopping in PA and VA along the way; after which they head up to Minnesota by way of Tennessee, Missouri, and Iowa before heading back to the Northeast through Wisconsin, Kentucky, and Ohio. They finish things strong with a slew of shows in PA and NY with fellow Boston heavy hitters Bugs and Rats before sealing the deal with a set at Wicked Mess on 4/23! Check the list of dates below and make sure you come out to Cambridge Elks in a few weeks to welcome them home!!
