Tiny Masters Of Today announces their US Tour dates beginning August 14th, 2009.
“Brooklyn’s pre-and-barely-teen sensations have been honing their poppy, punky craft since the ripe old age of eight. Collaborators like the Blues Explosion’s Russell Simins, Karen O, Kimya Dawson and Fred Schneider solidify their credentials, while none other than David Bowie proclaimed their first single ‘genius,'” says Village Voice according to their press release.
Wired calls them “More Sonic Youth than Miley Cyrus” reports their publicist. The band consists of full time students, Ivan, age 15, and his little sister, Ada, age 13 who perform onstage with drummer Jackson Pollis.
