The Shins are going to be incredibly busy this month. And, because we think that the various things they’re doing are pretty amazing, and also because we are having a hard time keeping track of it all ourselves (…), the following summation of January ’07, aka the month The Shins are totally all up in your grill:
This is the day that you can pre-order Wincing the Night Away on iTunes.
The Shins are the musical guests on Saturday Night Live! SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE! It’s my dick, in a box!
Starting on this day, and running through Jan. 21st, you can stream Wincing the Night Away, in its entirety, on Myspace!
You should really just get some rest.
The Shins will be performing live at midnight at the Virgin Records in New York’s Union Square. Buy a copy of the record at Virgin and you get in to see them play!
Not only does Wincing the Night Away come out on this day, but also the band will be playing on CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman! DAVID LETTERMAN!
In the morning, The Shins will be playing on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic. And, in the evening, at 8:00pm, they’ll be playing a free in-store at the Amoeba Records in Hollywood.
Consider yourself warned!
