Wichita is one of our favourite labels, not just because Mark Bowen is one of the nicest people in the music industry, but because of all the beautiful and brilliant music they've championed first and stuck to their guns with until the world relents and realises their genius. We're not talking any ol' bands. We're talking Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Bright Eyes, The Bronx, The Cribs, The Pattern and pretty soon we'll be adding Bloc Party to that list too...
Anyway, they have a novel ideal, a package tour of three of their very best, entitled 'The Music Machines' tour featuring Bravecaptain, Her Space Holiday and Weevil, plus guest Dj's. You know what to do...
