The first thing that we'd like to let everybody know about is the Local Natives' four night stand at SXSW March 18th-21st. Within these four days they will be playing a total of eight shows so you have absolutely no excuse to miss them, and trust me, you won't want to. For people who may not be able to afford the trip to Texas, although it is worth every penny, Local Natives will be touring the west coast the second half of April so you can catch them then.
In other news, the Local Natives are still currently working out a release date for their debut album, but have no fear because they are now working with the dapper guys over at Daytrotter to put together a little 5 song EP. The EP will include live tracks from their Daytrotter session as well as a few new tracks from the upcoming record. The band will have hard copies of the EP at SXSW, and it will also be available online in the coming weeks, so keep your eyes peeled.
