More Soft Targets Tour Dates; Local Show Announcements

As promised, we've got a lot of additional confirmed dates to announce for the Soft Targets' September "Heavy Rainbow" Tour... This is shaping up to be a monster tour with a lot of amazing venues on the schedule, so we couldn't be more excited.

But before we get to those dates, there are a few more shows coming up in Tallahassee before the boys kick of their tour good and proper-like. So if you're in the area, keep showing us your love by turning out with those sorely needed wads of cash (with gas prices in excess of $4.00 a gallon these days, the boys are going to need a lot of help keeping their van running).

The newest Tallahassee dates include:

JULY 11, 2008 - The Warehouse - w/The Frigid Airs and The Young Antiques (from Atlanta)
JULY 17, 2008 - Florida Museum of Natural History
AUGUST 1, 2008 - The Warehouse - (w/Guests TBA)

And here finally are those new confirmed "Heavy Rainbow" tour dates:

SEPT 7, 2008 - Snug Harbor - Charlotte, North Carolina
SEPT 17, 2008 - Canal Street Tavern - Dayton, Ohio
SEPT 18, 2008 - The Smiling Moose - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
SEPT 19, 2008 - North Star Bar - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
SEPT 23, 2008 - Talking Head Club @ Sonar - Baltimore, Maryland

Once all the remaining dates are final, we'll post the complete tour schedule here. In the meantime, you can find a complete running tally of the current confirmed dates on Soft Targets' MySpace page:

Soft Targets "Heavy Rainbow" Tour Updates

As announced in the last news update, Soft Targets are taking off for the wild, wild East Coast starting early in September with the national release of their new full-length, "Heavy Rainbow" on September 9th. We've got a couple of confirmed dates to announce for you at the conclusion of this update.

In the meantime, the Softies will be playing this Friday 13th in the first of what will be a continuing series of concert events hosted by Cloud 13 Records at The Warehouse here in sleepy little Tallahassee. Be sure to come and bring your friends. If you've got it to spare, bring wads of cash too, because we'll be passing around the hat taking up donations for gas money for the upcoming "Heavy Rainbow" tour. Later in the evening, we'll also be raffling off some free Cloud 13 Records merch.

These days, the news is coming in faster than I can keep track of it, so check back regularly for more big news.

Now for those tour dates I promised:
SEPT. 11th - The Underground - St. Louis, Missouri
SEPT. 20th -
REHAB - New York, New York
SEPT. 22nd -
Don Pedro’s - Williamsburg, Brooklyn
