Tickets on sale for Pennsylvania show

20 August 2008

Milkboy Coffee in Ardmore PATickets have just gone on sale for The Lightyears’ headline show at Milkboy Coffee in Ardmore, Pennsylvania, on Wednesday 17 September.

The band’s previous gigs at Milkboy have all sold out so you’d be advised to get your tickets early – visit the Milkboy website to grab yours whilst they’re hot…

And, just because we’re feeling charitable, the LYs’ shows in New York this September are all totally free to attend. The Time Out Back To School Blowout, presented in association with Virgin, is a four-hour event in Union Square with bands a-plenty and all kinds of wacky shenanigans going on, including live comedy from the Gotham Comedy Club. If you’re a student you can also take advantage of a bucket-load of free giveaways from participating vendors. Check the Back To School Blowout website for more info.

You can also catch the band for free at Pianos, Lower East Side, on Tuesday 16 September. The LYs will be forming one half of the venue’s legendary Cross-Pollination night, where two acts (who have, in many cases, never met) collaborate in a one-off jamming session. Joining the boys on the night will be California’s Chris & Thomas.

This autumn’s tour represents the band’s third visit to the United States. Read up on The Lightyears’ 2006/07 American adventures in Chris Lightyear’s International Tour Blog.
