Echo & the Bunnymen @ Great Scott Oct. 18

Echo & the Bunnymen are taking to the clubs. Despite a show in November at the House of Blues, the famed British post-punk band today announced an intimate club gig at Allston’s Great Scott on Sunday, Oct. 18. Tickets are $35, limited to two per customer and are on sale tomorrow at 10 a.m. through and Seeing as Great Scott holds 240 people, this should sell out fairly quickly.

The show is a part of Mark Kates’ ongoing Fenway Recording Sessions series, which has brought the likes of Ting Tings, MGMT, the Horrors, Cold War Kids, Wolfmother, Annie and Stellastarr* to the Allston club.

Echo & the Bunnymen’s 11th studio album, “The Fountain,” will be released Oct. 12. One track features a collaboration with Coldplay’s Chris Martin.

In 2006, Allston-based indie band the 8mm Fuzz performed a Halloween night cover set at Great Scott as Echo & the Bunnymen. And now it’s come full circle. “The Killing Moon,” indeed.
