Weird Forest is a label that, in my mind at least, has put out some releases by pretty stellar artists throughout its time. The label counts Pocahaunted, Mouthus, Emaralds, & Wooden Wand & The Vanishing Voice (that is, just to name a few) among its alumni. So it's came as no surprise to find out that Davy Bui (proprietor of WF) has an equally rad band.

Garrincha & The Stolen Elk, as they go by, is the duo of Davy and guitarist Matt Kretzmann. They're most recent cassette We Were Wyoming was put out by the fine people at Stunned. It combines some post-punk appeal & sax skronk together in a surprisingly no-wave influence release. The duo are preparing to release their 1st LP on Weird Forest.

To celebrate the release the pair are hitting the road on a national tour. Last Nights is also fortunate enough to presenting two nights with G+SE while they're in NY as well! More details on that later for now check out their tour schedule below
