Basement Jaxx, New Album Scars, Tour Dates
by Winston "Stone" Ford
Basement Jaxx – Scars feat Kelis, Meleka & Chipmunk
Most of y’all who have spoken to me in the past 10 years know that I’ve been down with Basement Jaxx since the beginning of time. No fair weather fan here, I remember buying my copy of Remedy at an HMV store when I lived out in London back in the day. I’ve had their current project, Scars for a hot minute now and it is truly a step above their last effort Crazy Itch Radio, and features a host of collaborators from Couch Sessions Approved artist Yo! Majesty to Kelis, Amp Fiddler, Chipmunk, Sam Sparro and even Yoko Ono (!).
To celebrate the release of the album the Jaxx are going on a mini tour of the United States. Unfortunately and predictably the only date on the East Coast is in New York at Santos.
10.30.09 – San Francisco, CA – Cow Palace (Live 105 event)
10.31.09 – Los Angeles, CA – HARD Haunted Mansion party
11.03.09 – Toronto, ON – Century Room
11.06.09 – Chicago, IL – Congress Theater
