Don’t forget to check out the obligatory Terry Richardson photo and the video for Everything is Embarrassing after the jump.

∆ (Alt-J) is Heading Back to the West Coast with a Bigger Venue to Accommodate Their Growing Popularity

Recently nominated for a Mercury Prize, ∆ (Alt-J) is stepping up venues on their next tour of the West Coast. LA’s Fonda Theatre will have them on December 12th which is sure to be a quick sell out. I recently saw them at the Bootleg Theatre and they have really come a long way since their US debut at School Night in Hollywood earlier this year. I’ve been listening to their album, An Awesome Wave since it was released in the UK this past May, thanks Rough Trade! Even though one of my friends thinks the singer sounds a little like Elmer Fudd, the music is infectious. Check out the video for Breezeblocks after the jump and buy your tickets ASAP for their show at the Fonda at Ticketmaster.
