The Octopus Project | 2009 North American Summer Tour Dates

Having just wrapped up a show on the Fourth of July opening for Explosions in the Sky, The Octopus Project are gearing up for a tour that will feature a date at the Austin Fashion Awards next Sunday (July 19th) evening at Dell Hall at the Long Center. While The Octopus Project will be headlining the night, other bands performing include: Alpha Rev, Mike Relm, The Soldier Thread, and one of our favorites, Ume. Festivities are set to start around 5:30 pm and you can purchase your tickets ($43) here.

Also be sure to pick up The Octopus Project's new EP Golden Beds (stream it here) on July 28th via Peek-A-Boo Records. The album has five songs, counting the track "Wet Gold" (down below for you to listen) and seven videos, including their live performance of "Truck" at last year's Austin City Limits Festival.
