Last we heard from The Shants, they were opening for Il Gato and embarking on a mini tour of California. Now, the band is scheduled to headline at the New Parish for their Oakland debut this Wednesday, May 19th (8:00 pm, $5/advance, $8/door, 18+).

After Wednesday’s show, the Shants will be embarking on a summer tour, and heading back to the studio to record a follow-up to their EP, Russian River Songs.
Calafia and Dave Smallen join the bill, rounding out an evening already steeped in classic folk.
