Smith Westerns Announce Shows With Florence & the Machine

Smith Westerns release dates with Florence & the Machine, Belle & Sebastian

Those who attended this year's Pitchfork Music Festival may recall a band named Smith Westerns.  Embodying everything you loved about discovering music in high school but with the talent and sophistication of adults, this Chicago band is captivating critics and listeners alike.  Smith Westerns recently wrapped up work on their forthcoming LP due out early 2011.  In the meantime the band is set to join Florence & the Machine on a handful of east coast tour dates after opening up for Belle & Sebastian at the Chicago Theatre.  If you missed the band at Pitchfork this year you can watch their performance shot by photographer Ryan McGinley on his site.  Smith Westerns' self-titled debut is out now on Fat Possum.
