The Fragile Army is on the march

As I sit here waiting on an oil change at the Athens VW dealership, it's been pointed out to me that Pitchfork has just posted the dates for the Polyphonic Spree tour. Oddly enough, I'm over in the Classic City primarily to catch their show tonight at the 40 Watt. It'll be a nice treat after a week or more of being either sick or swamped.

Now, if you're in my home area and you can't make this evening's Monday night madness, fear not. The Spree will be at Atlanta's Roxy Theatre on June 27. Here's the U.S. tour schedule:
