Who is…Let’s Go Sailing? Let’s find out:
In November of 2002, keyboardist Shana Levy left LA indie pop staples, Irving, to pursue her own outfit under the moniker Let’s Go Sailing. With a little time and a little help from her friends (such as Silversun Pickups‘ Nikki Moninger, Irving’s Brent Turner and Elvis Perkins), Let’s Go Sailing fleshed out Shana’s compositions into bittersweet indie pop with sophisticated arrangements and heart-on-the-sleeve vocals.
Let’s Go Sailing has already gotten love from tastemaker radio stations KCRW, Indie 103.1, KROQ as well as MTV’s Real World, and is now ready to take the show on the road. This Spring will see Shana and crew head out with much-buzzed about folk-rocker and collaborator Elvis Perkins.
And if you want to check Shana and her crew out live, you can hit them at SXSW on Wednesday, March 14th at 11pm at the Ritz. Or, hey, here’s a tour schedule for their dates with Elvis Perkins:
19 – Santa Fe, NM – O’Shaughnessy
20 – Tucson, AZ – Solar Culture
21 – San Diego, CA – The Casbah
24 – Los Angeles, CA – Largo
25 – San Francisco, CA – Cafe Du Nord
26 – Santa Cruz, CA – The Attic
29 – Portland, OR – Doug Fir Lounge
30 – Seattle, WA – The Tractor Tavern
3 – Denver, CO – Soiled Dove
4 – Omaha, NE – Sokol Underground
5 – Minneapolis, MN – 400 Bar
6 – Chicago, IL – Schuba’s
And the new album hits March 27th from Yardley Pop/GR2 and it’s called The Chaos in Order.
