'Chunk In Action

Superchunk is stirring a bit this spring! we have a new EP coming out at the beginning of April, Leaves in the Gutter which does not mean that it's the last songs we're releasing ever, it's a line from one of the songs. though it does also refer to the fact that these songs are collected from a couple different sessions over the last few years and it seemed like a good idea to put them out before they got too old, and before we were tempted to put them out on an album....for an album we'll need to start fresh. the EP will be followed closely by a couple of shows:

April 15th at the Cats Cradle in Chapel Hill
April 18th at Coachella in Indio, CA

...on our first trip out west our van broke down in Indio, CA. we were on the side of the road and got towed to this guy's auto repair show that was in the middle of a huge orange grove. when i say we got towed, i mean, we rode in the van while it was being towed, we might have been sitting up on top of the tow truck in the van, i can't remember which but it was slightly frightening. it didn't matter -- we had an opening slot the next night in LA with Sonic Youth at the Whiskey and had to get there. somehow this guy in the orange grove styled us out by the next morning, he was amazing. who knew there was a polo ground nearby? with concerts.

Really looking forward to the Coachella show. Superchunk in the lineup was a huge surprise, along with Cloud Cult.

Might you be able to squeeze in an Asheville appearance?

I was dissappointed that business will keep me from mergefest, so I think I'll roll down for this show. See ya there, mac.
