Perhaps in celebration of Mustache May 2011, it was announced this morning that be-bearded indie-folkies Fleet Foxes will take to The Ryman on their forthcoming tour to promote Helplessness Blues — the band's forthcoming follow-up to their critically fawned-over self-titled 2008 debut. The show is slated for May 13. Tickets are $27-$30. They go on sale Friday at noon here.
While Whiskerino enthusiasts and listeners with a proclivity for sitting singers are totally stoked, those darn Diarrhea Planet kids most definitely are not. Since this morning’s announcement, the wily local rockers have been bombarding the Ryman-bound canine armada — as well as anyone else who will listen — with some, well, fairly uninviting sentiments via Twitter.* Take a look after the jump to see some examples of said cyberbullying.
