We have received the following "transmission" about impending shows from mysterious supergroup United Nations, which features Geoff Rickly, formerly of Thursday

"In January of 2009 United Nations played their first show at the Black Cat in Washington, D.C. on inauguration day to usher in a new era of change. Now four years later the band are returning to the nation's capital to usher in a new era for our country and perform some songs they've secretly been perfecting during the Obama administration.

Mark your calendar because United Nations will be performing at DC9 on January 20, 2013, with Old Lines and Black Clouds. These shows will feature two of the latest additions to the UN cabinet who you may or may not recognize from Pianos Become The Teeth. Follow @TheOfficialUN as additional show information will be leaked soon leading up to the band's return to our nation's capital."

Tickets for the DC9 show are available for $10 at the venue's website.
