[on the road] SPORTS

Rochester five-piece SPORTS are heading out on a nearly three-week long tour that will take them to Austin for this year’s SxSW. The band released their full-length, self-titled debut last year to sold out shows in their hometown and opening for the likes of Stars and Ra Ra Riot.

If you haven’t heard of them, SPORTS is adept at catchy, pre-New Wave rock that would have sounded just as at home on the radio in the late 1970’s as it does today. The band’s songs are quick and addictive, and the band retains that energy in the live setting as well.

The band’s debut LP is available now: iTunes or Bandcamp.
