Thai rock band Moderndog (or Modern Dog, โมเดิร์นด็อก) has set dates for a tour of the U.S. and the U.K., starting in San Francisco on June 14, and hitting clubs in Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C., and New York and then London and Manchester.
The dates and venues are at the Moderndog forum. Before the band takes off, they're giving a "Private Performance" on Tuesday night, June 9, at the Thailand Cultural Center.
The band's music has been featured in several Thai films -- their song "...Before" ("...ก่อน") is the opening and closing credits theme to Wisit Sasanatieng's Citizen Dog. Other film credits include Final Score and Hormones -- ตาสว่าง (live performance), "Hoo Dtaa Sa-Waang" (music video, with Thep Po-ngam) is featured in both those GTH films.
