Broken Social Scene to stream first show of new tour

January 12, 2011

Broken Social Scene will kick off a second tour of the U.S. with a show at Terminal 5 in New York City that will be streamed live via YouTube thanks to Bowery Presents. The stream begins at 9PM EST on Tuesday, Jan. 18. Access it here and bookmark it!

I have long heard they put on a great live show, so I’m happy to see that this new tour will finally have them visit Florida for not one but three scheduled dates!

I got into the band late in their career, but I have since become familiar with their catalog inside out. I even got on the bandwagon too late to see them at an obscure date in the Fort Lauderdale at the Culture Room. They had no new album to promote at the time– (their last one had come out in 2005). Despite that, I still heard the club was filled to capacity.

Here are the dates for the new tour:

1/16/11 London, ON @ The Music Hall
1/18/11 New York, NY @ Terminal 5
1/29/11 Edmonton, AB @ Freezing Man Festival
2/10/11 Atlanta, GA @ Buckhead Theatre
2/11/11 Tampa, FL @ Ritz
2/12/11 Fort Lauderdale @ Revolution Hall
2/13/11 Orlando, FL @ Firestone Live
2/15/11 New Orleans, LA @ Tipitina’s
2/17/11 Houston, TX @ Warehouse Live
2/18/11 Austin, TX @ La Zona Rosa
2/19/11 Dallas, TX @ House of Blues
2/20/11 Tulsa, OK @ Cain’s Ballroom

Want a taste of them live on official MP3? You can download their Radio 3 CBC live session at Studio 211, in Toronto, from April 29, 2010. It looks like it features two exclusive, possibly new tracks.
