Xiu Xiu Set To Play Canadian Dates

Published: 2004-09-15
Hailing from sunny California, indie rock band Xiu Xiu is set to brave the dicey weather of the Canadian autumn to play four dates within the country's borders. The four-piece will be playing in support of their February 2004 release 'Fabulous Muscles' during their short North American tour.

After Xiu Xiu wraps up their dates on this continent, they will be jetting to Europe to play a series of dates in Spain, Portugal, and France.

Although Xiu Xiu has released three full-length albums in just two years, 'Fabulous Muscles' is the first that has pushed the band out of the realms of the obscure. The band debuted with 2002's 'Knife Play', a record that many found very hard to relate to. 'Fabulous Muscles' on the other hand, has more typical indie elements within its songs, making it much more accessible.

Some compare Xiu Xiu's music to the Cure and Joy Division – a stark contrast to the nature of the band's home state. To listen to clips of a few of the tracks off of Xiu Xiu's 'Fabulous Muscles', go to the band's site at www.xiuxiu.org.

Xiu Xiu's upcoming Canadian dates:

September 19 Vancouver – Brickyard
September 20 Calgary – Broken City
September 21 Edmonton – Starlite
September 23 Winnipeg – Collective
