      Gang of Four Announce Fall Tour

      Kavitha Chekuru reports:
      So far, it's been a really good year for Gang of Four. And since everyone should (and does) worship the ground Gang of Four walk on, it has therefore been a good year for everyone. Having influenced every band around today with side bangs and angular guitar riffs, the political post-punks decided that they should just come back in the flesh and take a second stab at their history themselves. So after pumping through the first half of this year with a spring tour, a Coachella appearance, new recordings, and a reissue of their classic debut album, Entertainment!, they have announced a fall tour for us lucky folk in the States. It will last a mere month, but include a stopover at the Across the Narrows Festival in NYC, as well as a variety of other dates from sea to shining sea.

      The tour will start just after the release of Whitey's Gift, a collection of re-recorded and remixed old Gang of Four songs, on September 20. We're still waiting to see whether that record is an untouchable and perfect artifact or a complete travesty, by the way. In any case, flock to these cities, comrades:
