Philadelphia-based indie rock figurehead Shamir just announced an upcoming show supporting Waxahatchee on April 19 at Elsewhere in Brooklyn, New York. The show also features Bonny Doon as well as unannounced special guests – more info & tickets here. This follows Shamir’s latest track release “Burn With Me” on the Bernie Sanders benefit compilation Bernie Speaks with the Community, with proceeds being donated to support his campaign. Shamir also recently appeared in the Netflix documentary I’m With The Band: Nasty Cherry and will be dropping the first single of a new album this summer – stay tuned.
Shamir’s most recent album Be the Yee, Here Comes the Haw came on the heels of critically acclaimed surprise self-released masterpiece, Resolution. The 2017 full-lengthRevelationsand its follow-up 7” Room were the Las Vegas native’s first endeavors into a new avenue of guitar-driven hooky anthems that the previous, more dance-oriented work had never explored.
