The Frames Return To America For 20th Anniversary

Influential Dublin group The Frames have gathered together for a month of dates across the US in celebration of their 20th year as a band.

After warming up a capacity crowd - most donned in their wellies - at the Electric Picnic Arts & Music Festival this coming weekend in Stradbally, Co. Laois, original members Glen Hansard and Colm Mac Con Iomaire will cross the Atlantic for eight gigs throughout America:

19 Nov 2010 - Theater of Living Arts, Philadelphia, PA
20 Nov 2010 - Terminal 5, New York, NY
21 Nov 2010 - 9:30 Club, Washington, DC
23 Nov 2010 - Vic Theatre, Chicago, IL
26 Nov 2010 - The Showbox, Seattle, WA
27 Nov 2010 - Wonder Ballroom, Portland, OR
28 Nov 2010 - The Fillmore, San Francisco, CA
30 Nov 2010 - Avalon Ballroom, Los Angeles, CA

No word on whether a new album may be in the works. However, TNOP listeners are well-advised to take advantage of this rare opportunity to see a dynamic live act. For a sample, here's The Frames performing one of their show-stopping numbers, "Fitzcarraldo," from Lollapalooza in Chicago's Grant Park, 2006:
