Every day we creep closer to the summer concert season, and we have more to look forward to with newly announced dates from Scottish indie band Belle & Sebastian.
The band will hit the road for a handful of shows in July, including stops in Philadelphia and Royal Oak. Tickets for both shows are on sale now right here on AXS, including AXS Premium seating, and Belle & Sebastian will donate one dollar from every ticket sale to the Syria Civil Defense, a humanitarian organization which "helps communities prepare for, respond to and recover from attacks" as part of the ongoing conflict in Syria.
Later in the summer, fans can join Belle & Sebastian for The Boaty Weekender, a musical cruise sailing round-trip from Barcelona to Cagliari, Sardinia also featuring Mogwai, Yo La Tengo, Camera Obscura, Buzzcocks, Japanese Breakfast and more, plus activities like yoga, quizzes, and games. The first 350 people to book a stateroom will be treated to a special performance.
Belle & Sebastian's most recent release was the EP trilogy How to Solve Our Human Problems, released last year, and their music will be featured in Simon Bird's film adaptation of graphic novel Days of the Bagnold Summer.
