Grand Pocket Orchestra record album, plan German tour
Fresh from a stint in New York – and a visit to Canadian Music Week – GPO will head east to play a mini-tour in Germany and Denmark next month, before returning home to record their debut LP.
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 23 Mar 2009
The Dublin quartet will play Astra Stube in Hamburg on April 28, followed by Lades Kaelder in Copenhagen (29), Privat Club in Berlin (30) and Antje Oeklesund in the same city on May 1. The tour will conclude at the Limes Club in Cologne on May 2.
Then it's back home for dates in the Roisin Dubh, Galway (May 12, with Alphastates) and Cork's Pavilion (14).
But before they spend some time abroad, GPO will be in Cork for the next five weeks recording their first album, the follow-up to their Odd Socks and Make Happy War EPs, which you can buy in Road Records, City Discs, Freebird, Plugd and via their MySpace.
