Sadly, it appears that The Frames will not be appearing at South by Southwest next month. Although the band had been scheduled to play twice during the festival, the band’s website posted a warning a day or two ago that those shows were “unlikely” due to an unspecified scheduling conflict. As of this morning, the website now confirms that those dates are being canceled because the band needs to go into the studio to record music for Glen’s movie, Once. Crap. Hopefully this means that they’ve gotten some serious financing for the movie, and we’ll be seeing it in the U.S.
The rest of the band’s U.S. tour in April is unaffected, thankfully. Guess this just means I might have to try to catch them in Philly or D.C. in addition to New York.
