La Roux Are Wheeling Their Arses Across North America This Summer

That's right, pop chyldren—after La Roux's brief club tour back in April, Elly Jackson and Ben Langmaid are coming back to the States and Canada for a proper North American tour. (Well, actually, Ben never made it over the first time around.)

Here are the dates:
July 22 — San Francisco, CA @ Café Du Nord
July 24 — Los Angeles, CA @ The Troubadour
July 27 — Vancouver, BC @ Biltmore
July 28 — Seattle, WA @ Chop Suey
July 31 — Toronto, ON @ El Mocambo
August 1 — Montreal, QC @ Osheaga Festival
August 2 — New York, NY @ All Points West Festival
August 6 — Washington, DC @ Town
August 7 — Chicago, IL @ Lollapalooza

La Roux's full-length album is out Monday in the U.K. and this October in the U.S. on Cherrytree, the same label as Lady Gaga.

In the meantime, the singles "Bulletproof," "In For The Kill" and "Quicksand" are available on iTunes here.

    You asked me the other day about my liking La Roux (everyone did!) but I am surprised you like her! Will you go see her - I am a bit worried she might be a shrieker live.

    I am very excited! Cafe duNord is right around the corner from me!!

    XO, why are you surprised I like her? Just curious. She's not a shrieker live, though. I saw her when she/they played the Roxy in April (click the link in the post).

    Jimmy, should be a good show!
