Hey, if you lived in North Carolina, you could be going to see Health tonight.

Most of the U.S. tour is winding up, but a few dates remain in the south…then they head to Europe for Roskilde and assorted other festivals.

June 23, 2010 Snug Harbor, Charlotte, NC
June 24, 2010 529, Atlanta, GA
June 25, 2010 One Eyed Jacks, New Orleans, LA
June 26, 2010 Red 7, Austin, TX

More dates and additional tunes at the MySpace

I wrote a little preview for the Philly show, which was Monday.

Health + Indian Jewelry
7:30pm, $12. First Unitarian Church.
God knows what Nine Inch Nails fans made of Health last summer when the drum-battering, mic-torturing, spazzed-out noise combo opened on Trent Reznor’s last-ever extravaganza. For this date, they’re sharing a more natural bill with Indian Jewelry, the Houston-based, distortion-fuzzed outgrowth of Swarm of Angels and NTX + Electric. Lately, both bands have been leaning away from free-form noise and towards a warped, woozy form of dance music. Health’s latest salvo was its remix album Disco2, a collection of radiant reinterpretations of Get Color tracks by artists including Javelin, Tobacco and (also on this bill) Gold Panda. Indian Jewelry’s Totaled, out this spring on We Are Free, spliced droned-out mantras with the undulating rhythms of drum machines. (Jennifer Kelly)

Really love Tobacco’s remix of “Die Slow”…very Black Moth Super Rainbow. It's up at LA Weekly's blog but the link doesn't work, so I put it on sendspace.
