miss vintage on the liberty live tour

Heads up. Philadelphia-based "art rock" band Miss Vintage is partnering up with Liberty in North Korea (LiNK) and traversing across the United States this fall on the Liberty Live Tour 2008 to promote awareness about the atrocities happening in North Korea. From September 14 to October 14, they'll be doing shows at 22 major universities across the country. With special performances by Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Andy Grammer.

Check out the tour video here. Each night on the tour, a representative from LiNK will be briefly speaking about North Korean human rights and the refugee crisis before Miss Vintage's set. Also accompanying the band will be Dong-hyuk Shin, a North Korean defector born into slavery and raised as a political prisoner in a North Korean concentration camp.

Miss Vintage will also be promoting their recently released second album, Our Lives Are Not Through Just Yet. Their sound is described as "a classic clash of intrigue and pop sensibilities," influenced by Explosions in the Sky, Sigur Ros, Mew, and Radiohead.
