The Format / Anathallo / Ranier Maria Tour Dates!

What a lineup this is! If you've followed the site you know that I love all three of these bands, and their making 40 stops this July/August all over the U.S. (even Arkansas and Connecticut get in on some of the action) in what's being called the "Dog Days of Summer" Tour. I'm marking my calendar for August 18th in Chicago. Part of the proceeds of this tour is going to charity, so you'll be supporting good music and also the less fortunate.

Here's some music and a brief description of each of the bands. Follow the jump if you just want the dates...

The Format: Undeniably catchy power-pop who have recently majorly expanded their sound.
MP3 She Doesn't Get It
MP3 The Compromise

Ranier Maria: Veteran female-fronted band from the "emo" era. Their latest album is arguably their best and most consistent to date.
MP3 Burn

Anathallo: self-described "intensely celebratory and theatrical marching band gone wild" cursed/blessed with frequent Sufjan comparisons.
MP3 Hoodwink
MP3 Hanasakajijii (Four: A Great Wind, More Ash)
(myspace links - left click to download)

Side note: Street to Nowhere is also playing but I haven't been able to listen to them yet. Any good?

Well I am one that would be seein them all in Arkansa because there are some southerners who like good music too. I've listened to streets to nowhere a little bit. I like some of their songs on their myspace, but then I bought their cd on itunes(because I had a giftcard) and haven't listened to it again after the first listen. It didn't please my ears and it didn't seem like an album that was going to get better the more I listened to it.

I would just like to point out that the name is Rainer Maria, not Ranier Maria.
