Sailors are going on tour

Posted: April 10th, 2006, by Jon Goodwin

Hi. Not sure if this kind of self-promotion is appropriate, but its been fairly quiet on here of late so I’ll chance my arm.

My band, Sailors, are going on tour for the first time this week. It would be cool if you came out and saw us and said hello.

Friday April 14th – Spalding, Lincs, The Black Swan w/ Not In This Town and Toys For girls (according to the Spalding Shows website)

Saturday April 15th – Brighton, The Freebutt w/ Cove, Foals, Tired Irie (we’re playing first)

Sunday April 16th – London, The Pullens Social Centre, Elephant and Castle LUNCHTIME SHOW (we play about 2) w/ Valerie and Corey Orbsion

Tuesday April 18th – Bristol, The Junction, w/ The Unit Ama, Colonel K (i think we’re on second out of three, but not sure)

Wednesday April 19th – looks like we may well be doing The Judges Lodgings, York w/ Whores Whores Whores and Chickenhawk

April 20th – Manchester, House Gig @ 33 Anson Road, w/ Breakneck Static, An Emergency and more.

Jon is a Leeds-based diskant agent, who aided his passing of our severely rigorous interview process by, essentially, having good taste and bigging up his time at 2004's All Tomorrow's Parties. Beyond this, we know little about him, but imagine that it's pretty likely that he has one of those friendly-sounding Leeds accents, and that he is good friends with David Gedge, Cud and Hood. And possibly my sister, who lives in Leeds right now.
