Just in time for their upcoming tour, The Blue Dot is now sponsoring Philly’s hottest band, Drink Up Buttercup. The boys in DUB head out this week for a countrywide tour and we’re looking forward to their mobile updates, which will be sent from their refurbished iPhone.
DUB’s tour, which includes several shows with Indy favorites We Are Scientists, will take them to the South By South West festival in Austin, Texas where the band is eager to showcase their first full-length album. The album, Born and Thrown on a Hook, drops from Yep Rock Records on March 23rd and is available for pre-order at Drink Up’s website.
