Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players play UK shows

The world’s first Indie-Vaudville conceptual art-rock pop band, the Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players recently in residence at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival are set to return to the UK for their biggest tour to date. The recent UK release of their debut album ‘Vintage Slide Collections From Seattle, Volume 1’, possibly the first and only album to contain a six song mini rock opera based on the contents of a McDonalds Corporate Slideshow, has delighted and baffled in equal measure (“Witty, catchy and life-affirming” Esquire, “If you listen to them for more than 17 seconds your brain will turn melon shaped…go purchase. We hereby award it 10/10” NME).

The band unleashed the full might of their power at their recent UK live debut at the Water Rats, ICA and Buffalo Bars shows. A packed ICA sang along to favourites such as ‘Mountain Trip To Japan 1959’ many of whom tried unsuccessfully to see them again at the smaller Buffalo bars where hundreds queued unsuccessfully to see them at this intimate venue. Those who missed them last time round can catch them at the following shows
