Goatsnake and Pelican Midwest Shows Start Dec. 12

If you ever want proof that the universe is an uncaring, relentlessly cruel void — first of all, look anywhere — I humbly submit the fact that Goatsnake and Pelican are doing shows and I won’t be there to see it. I don’t know much about Ferndale, Michigan, other than it’s someplace outside of Detroit, but I’ve never been more interested to tourist my ass out there and find out more. “Seeing Goatsnake” is an item that remains on my existential wishlist, where it has remained since they started doing shows again half a decade ago, and to catch them with Pelican on the latter’s home turf, well, that sounds just fine. I think I’d enjoy that very much.

Oh good, I just made myself sad. At least I’m consistent.

GOATSNAKE And PELICAN Midwest US Tour Begins Next Week

Southern Lord labelmates GOATSNAKE and PELICAN will embark on their four-city Midwest US mini-tour next week, marking GOATSNAKE’s first time ever performing in the region and PELICAN’s return to towns which they’ve not played in quite some time.

Uniting Southern California’s soulful doom quartet, GOATSNAKE, and Chicago’s atmospheric post-rock artisans, PELICAN, this special run of tour dates will begin in Indianapolis on December 12th. The first show also features Bongripper and more, and will be followed by a post-show afterparty at Kuma’s Corner, where the bands’ prior special burgers will be made available as a trio of miniatures, the event also featuring DJ Sets by Greg Anderson of GOATSNAKE and Dustin Boltjes of Skeletonwitch. The rest of the tour sees both bands playing to fans in Columbus on December 13th, Ferndale on the 14th and the final show hitting Chicago on the 15th with Cloakroom and Canadian Rifle. Since prior announcements, the Chicago show has been moved from Thalia Hall to the more intimate caves of the Empty Bottle
