Merriweather Post Pavilion's summer schedule is shaping up to be quite spectacular. Recent show announcements already have us daydreaming about enjoying warm summer nights on Merriweather's lawn, and their most recent news has us yearning for that even more. Now we're looking forward to Belle and Sebastian with Yo La Tengo on Friday, July 12!
It's been two and a half years since Belle and Sebastian's most recent studio album, so their full-force return has been met with much excitement from fans. Earlier this month, Pitchfork released an hour-long documentary on the band's 1996 breakthrough album If You're Feeling Sinister, then the Scottish indie poppers announced a North American tour. Also in the works is a compilation of B-sides and rare tracks entitled The Third Eye Centre, which will be released this June, and a ninth studio album, to be recorded following the upcoming tour.
