The Mallard has made some big moves in the last five or six months: releasing Yes On Blood (an absolutely fantastic album that pushes the notion of garage in new and exciting directions), toured with Thee Oh Sees, and set the stakes for a summer of almost non-stop touring. Lucky for the Northwest, the band will be starting this Summer ‘o’ Tour with a jaunt up the coast, stopping in Portland, Olympia and Seattle.
It’s short, sweet, and totally worth your crumple up wad of dollars.
I especially recommend that Seattle show at The Comet as she’ll be playing with Koko & The Sweetmeats at what’s been called their last show before an indefinite hiatus.

Saturday May 19th, The Know – Portland, OR w/ Woolen Men, The Happening
Sunday May 20th, The Comet – Seattle, WA w/ Koko & The Sweetmeats, Telemesser, Origami Ghosts
