Little Joy Adds Dates, Plans 2009 Summer Tour :: w/ Austin date (The Independent)

Last month we informed you of Little Joy's plan to return to Texas this Summer, now more dates have surfaced, as well as news of a tour lineup change. Jack Dishel, aka Only Son will be taking Fabrizio Moretti's place on guitar and backup vocals. Moretti if you already didn't know is in New York helping write material for The Strokes' new album (about time).

Little Joy will be here in Austin at The Independent on June 8th (Monday), purchase tickets ($13) here. While The Independent doesn't have a website and since a lot of people have asked us where it's at, here's a map (it's nearby where the FADER Fort was during this year's SXSW if that helps).

Update: The Independent now has a website.

In addition to their own headlining shows, Little Joy will also open for Regina Spektor at the Beacon Theatre in New York on June 17th. (via NME)
