Dark Side Cowboys finally return to Finland and to Turku (it was more than 20 years since the riders paid this town a visit) to play live at the All Hallows’ Ball, hosted by Club Undead at the Nirvana venue. This is part of the 30 year celebration tour and there may be some old hits in the setlist….
Dark Side Cowboys are featured on the compilation “La Danse Macabre 14”, released by At Sea Compilations, alongside a bunch of other artists such as Secret Discovery and Pieti. Get your copy of the compilation here.
Dark Side Cowboys will play live on November 24 in Helsingborg, Sweden, at Charles Dickens Bar & Scen alongside Then Comes Silence and Vision Video. This is the first announced live gig from a series of carefully selected live appearances that DSC will do as part of the 30 year celebration. The official DSC birthday is in November.
