Born Ruffians Tour Dates

I was just looking over my iCal (and realized I’m WAY behind) and remembered there’s a Born Ruffians show here in Cambridge on Friday, upstairs at the Middle East. So I’m smiling, Born Ruffians is a band I’ve been super hyping since seeing them at the FADER Space during CMJ ’06 (video included here is of the band performing “I’m One Of Those Girls”) followed by a few shows in NYC not too long after, I remember one in particular at the Merc (when they played with Shy Child I think?) you’re looking at a few snaps from that show, followed by my playing of “This Sentence Will Ruin/Save Your Life” on repeat ad nauseum much to my coworkers’ dismay.
Well the wait for full record of new tunes is almost over and I’m stoked Warp Records (probably my favorite label) is releasing it rather than once rumored XL Recordings.Here’s a look at the dates/venues for their full tour:
