Tickets priced €35 on sale now through www.ticketmaster.ie & usual outlets nationwide.
Portland, OR’s Stephen Malkmus (former Pavement frontman) & the Jicks announce date for Dublin’s Vicar Street this October where fans can likely expect a further taste of new music, on top of the band’s beloved catalogue.
Listen to new single ‘Middle America’ below - the first new music to surface from the group since 2014.
On ‘Middle America’, Malkmus’s wry wordplay and sunny twang create an ode to underdogs everywhere, with bittersweet words of encouragement for the ramshackle character on their receiving end. Only SM & the Jicks can craft this kind of brightly low-key anthem, a perfect three-minute-thirty-second country-speckled gem about life’s questions big (the inevitable passage of time; aging) and small (getting shitfaced; blushing the color of Robitussin).
