Teepee Spring Tour

Miami, FL 33127
Local experimental musician Teepee will celebrate the beginning of a three week national tour with his full band at Bardot on Thursday, March 28, 2013. Supporting DJs include Mikey Ramirez from Radio-Active Records, and Mr. Jolt, host and owner of local internet radio station Jolt Radio.
Teepee pairs experimental dissonance with confessional, melodic beauty to create uncompromising, lush noise pop. The groupâ€™s latest effort Distant Love or: Time Never Meant Anything, And Never Will is their most ambitious album to date, drawing heavily from sonic innovators My Bloody Valentine, Joe Meek, and Death in June. The three piece live band consists of Erix S. Laurent, Andrew McLees, and Dion Keith Kerr IV.
The upcoming tour will support the release of Teepee’s latest album, and continues throughout April with an appearance at Graveface Records in Savannah, GA for Record Store Day on April 20th. Along the way, Teepee will perform with The People’s Temple (HoZac Records), Levek (Lefse Records), Dead Confederate (Old Flame Records), and Purling Hiss (Fan Death, Drag City Records), among others. Please see below for exact dates. The band’s profile continues to rise both locally and nationally: CMJ profiled Teepee on their website in June 2012; BeachedMiami selected Time Meant Nothing as their #1 local single of 2012; and Miami New Times voted Distant Love one of the year’s best local albums.
