The Gories Are Still Cooler Than You

One of the best Detroit bands ever to grace the garage scene, The Gories, is back!

The Gories lasted roughly from 1986-1992 and are a delightfully primitive sounding, hard rocking group signed to the influential Crypt Records and including Motor City icon and guitarist/singer Mick Collins (who would later form The Dirtbombs), Peg O'Neill and Dan Kroha (also of Rocket 455 and The Demolition Doll Rods).

After a nearly 20-year break, the Gories reformed last summer for a European tour (with quick Detroit andgories Memphis reunion shows), while those of us who are fans across the USA collectively held our breath, crossing our fingers for some more spread-out dates here. The time has come to breathe freely again -- The Gories are coming!

Tour dates currently include NYC tonight and tomorrow! But also I have uncovered a San Francisco Gories show at the Independent on September 9! Look for The Gories in your town! Here are the other dates announced so far:

7/30 New York, NY - Bowery Ballroom

7/31 New York, NY - Lincoln Center
