Scissors for Lefty Tour with Juliette and the Licks

Fresh from performing alongside The Killers, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Cat Power and MSTRKRFT at The Echo Project in Atlanta this weekend, San Francisco-based party starters Scissors For Lefty will join the rollicking Juliette and the Licks as main support for an extensive national tour. The band made a stop at the CMJ Music Marathon in N.Y. for a performance at the regional showcase SF @ CMJ at the Ace of Clubs, Oct. 18.

A mix of high-energy enthusiasm, unpredictable stage antics, tongue-in-cheek lyricism and the band’s self-described “pillow-talk pop,” Scissors For Lefty’s live show has been winning over fans from their hometown to the U.K. and beyond. The band will be documenting these infectious shows and giving fans a glimpse into life on the road with a daily live streaming videocast presented by lifecasting website Justin.tv. Each night of the tour a different member of Scissors For Lefty will don a camera to record the action from his point of view on the stage, backstage, in the van, and anywhere else they may go. Viewers can logon to Justin.tv/scissorsforlefty and tune in everyday at 2 pm in the show’s corresponding time zone for “Personality Hour” and every Saturday at the same time for a live chat with the guys.

Named “Best Up and Coming Indie Rock Band” by SF WEEKLY, Scissors For Lefty is touring behind its sophomore LP, UNDERHANDED ROMANCE, released this past June on Eenie Meenie Records (Great Northern, Division Day). SPIN exclaimed: “Eager rock magpies come bearing bright, catchy gifts… huge hooks and playful pleasures win the day. So cheerily unpretentious, it’s almost irresistible,” while PASTE remarked: “undeniable, butt-shaking riffs.” NME described them as: “…ambitious, sarcastic sophistopop… quirky, promising and quite possibly awesome.”
