Forro In The Dark Festive Summer Plans

The following story was part of the Day in Rock Report for 5/15/08 - (PR) Forro In The Dark Announces Summer Dates and Fun And Festive EP Release. New York's favorite Brazilian party band steps out this summer with a schedule of festival and club dates.

The five-piece outfit favored by Steve Earle and David Byrne for their modern interpretation of the traditional Brazilian dance style known as forró also has a new EP titled Dia de Roda slated for digital release on Nublu Records on May 13.

Dia de Roda is a five-song collection that kicks off with a reggae inspired jam, whips through some sweat-inducing Brazilian backcountry grooves, and ends up with rockabilly-inflected forró finale, the perfect soundtrack for warm weather hi-jinks.

May 29 @ IOTA, Arlington, VA
May 30 @ World Café, Philadelphia, PA
