Last month during Austin's June-concertapalooza, School of Seven Bells hit up the Mohawk with Black Moth Super Rainbow. While we went to just about every GREAT concert last month (Passion Pit, Animal Collective, Little Joy, CLUES, The Golden Filter/VEGA, Santigold, Grizzly Bear, St. Vincent, The Great Nostalgic & The Authors), this was one we unfortunately missed!
The band recently signed with Vagrant Records and will be re-releasing their 2008 debut, Alpinisms this upcoming Tuesday.
