Ume Announces 2009 North American Summer Tour

If you read our blog regularly, you know we're huge fans of local band Ume (they also headlined our first show earlier this month). Tomorrow evening brings them to the Granada Theater in Dallas to open for The Octopus Project. Then starting with a tour kickoff date at Emo's opening for Lions, they'll embark on a month long tour throughout June that includes a performance at the NXNE Festival in Toronto, ON.

We wish them nothing but great success on the road. Good luck!
