Portastatic at Town Hall

one more date for the Portastatic calendar -- we'll be playing at Town Hall in NYC opening for M.Ward on January 26th, and doing it as a duo, which is a little frightening considering the size and esteem of the venue. i remember being really nervous when i played there in Yo La Tengo, and i was onstage with pros. Sure, Matt's playing solo, but he also has like 10 fingers on each hand so superpowers like that make it less daunting i'd think. Anyway, after that show we're playing with Yo La Tengo at the Cat's Cradle on Feb 5 and then doing the Camera Obscura west coast tour. After which i predict a radical slowdown in the amount of Portastatic live appearances for awhile...but i've said that before.
