Kinch Clinches SxSW Birth, Tour With Dear and the Headlights

We've got a couple big pieces of news involving Kinch, who recorded what we said was the best album in Arizona last year. First comes news that they've been selected for SxSW, joining several other Phoenix bands at indie rock's biggest showcase. They've also got new tracks from their The Economic Chastisement EP posted here.

Oh, and if all that weren't enough, we've learned from Psyko Steve that they'll be picked up for the the Dear And The Headlights tour Miniature Tigers dropped of to open for Ben Folds.
