The Wild Moccasins Do Europe: More Details + Tour Kickoff

As previously mentioned, Houston’s own indie-pop sons & daughter The Wild Moccasins not only got themselves a record deal with New West Recs, but they’re also now headed further afield than most of our homegrown bands ever, ever, ever get — namely, to Europe, the land of cheese, wine, and decent public transportation.

Which, needless to say, is pretty badass. Before they hit the airport/road, however, the gang’s throwing a tour kickoff blowout of a show, Saturday, February 12th, up at (where else?) Fitzgerald’s; it’s a month or so away, I know, but I wanted to give y’all a chance to mark the calendars early-early-early for this one. I swear, these folks get better & better each and every time I see ’em, and 2010’s debut full-length, Skin Collision Past, is/was pretty fantastic.

Plus, they’re playing with openers Young Mammals, who are also amazingly cool, and Wicked Poseur, which is a band/”project” thing I’ve heard raves about for a few years now but have sadly never seen…

For those on the other side of the pond (or with insanely massive bank accounts and tons of free time), here’s the band’s actual schedule while they’re overseas:

And look, the dates are even in that quaint Euro-style day-first-then-month format, in preparation for the tour! Dang Europeans, they’ve already gotten to ’em; the next thing you know, they’ll be using the metric system & whatnot.

Go to the kickoff, y’all, and let’s make sure the Moccasins kids want to come back from Old Blighty…
