THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT PLAY 30 UK SHOWS IN 30 DAYS / VIDEO

a2_credit_kristi_sparrow_phixr.jpgLos Angeles indie upstarts the Airborne Toxic Event are set to embark on their first UK Tour as they race across the UK to play an unheard-of 30 shows in 30 days.

The UK is no doubt going to be experiencing a great live band. The Orange County Register wrote in a recent review of the group’s show with the Fratellis (part of their current tour): “the real excitement this night came from a first encounter with opening act the Airborne Toxic Event, a striking quintet from the Los Feliz area that has been racking up next-big-thing talk from Rolling Stone and the L.A. press all year.”
