Girls have a lust for life and touring

on November 17, 2009, 11:30am

2010 is shaping up to be a lot like 2009 for San Francisco’s Girls. Well, maybe not quite the same, unless they announce a surprise sophomore record (wishful thinking, I know, but is that really a bad thing?). Anyway, with the release of its lush debut Album, the band settled in and played a slew of dates across the nation. In case you missed one of their shows, which is kind of likely as many were sold out, 2010 will be your chance to see some, well, live Girls performing.

Girls are going to continue on the road way into February. The stops are mostly in the South and the West Coast, including three dates in their hometown of San Francisco. The band is also bringing in some great young acts that you should catch, including Real Estate and The Smith Westerns, the latter of who were kicked out of CMJ for too much underage partying.

Also, you know that crazy back story of Girls frontman Christopher Owens, where he was in the Children of God cult, a life of drugs, his mother’s dysfunction, his running away and being picked up by a multimillionaire Texan? Yeah, it seems like that is all pretty much true.
