Lightspeed Champion - new album and May 2010 UK tour

Posted: 24th February 2010

Devonté Hynes aka Lightspeed Champion is back on the touring trail, giving us lucky UK people a full 8 chances to see him in action this May.

The Texas-born British citizen, who now resides in New York (phew) has just released his sophomore album, 'Life Is Sweet! Nice to Meet You' and I must say it's a pretty damn good set of songs and will be great to hear live. So it's all the better Mr Champion is setting aside May for UK gigging duties, starting off on Monday 3rd at The Bodega Social in Nottingham before going to Manchester, Newcastle, Birmingham, London, Portsmouth and Bristol before ending up at The Haymakers in Cambridge on May 15th. Tickets are £9 plus booking fees (excluding London which is £11 + booking fees) so it is certainly value for money for a man voted in the Top 50 coolest people in Rock by the NME. Twice.
