Swedes and Argentinians Make Peace, José González to Sign Treaty on Yacht in Gothenburg

José González will be appearing on televisions across the nation, on American Latino TV. It will be aired on January 29th. You can check your local listings here, but if you live in Dallas, it will be on KTXA 21 SUN 12:00 AM. If you aren't normally a night-owl, you should consider staying up late.

González is also going to be touring this spring. The following dates have been confirmed, and hopefully he will fill the voids in between some of these dates (come on Dallas!).

03-11 Singapore, Singapore - Concert Hall (Mosaic Music Festival)
04-26 Marfa, TX - Marfa Ballroom
04-29 Indio, CA - Empire Polo Field (Coachella)
05-02 Urbana, IL - Courtyard Café

In other news, we have some SXSW updates for you. If you're a fan of The Blow, you might like to know that Jona's other musical endeavor, YACHT, is playing SXSW this year. He had this to say about it:

"Also, I decided that I'm going to play SXSW. I've never been to SXSW and I'm stoked to be able to get in at the last minute. As of right now I have two shows and I'm planning on playing as many as possible. 1000 shows in 3 minutes, guys. See you there!"
