Local live electronic act organicArma are doubtless celebrating a wish come true. Band leader Dharma has long been an outspoken admirer of the New York art-electro-pop outfit Fischerspooner, hinting to me last winter that he wanted to book them to play at his expansive Awarehouse venue.

He may not have accomplished that -- yet -- but he's still scored a major coup for organicArma, who also recently signed a major-level distribution deal with Rock Ridge Music. His trio will hit the road with Fischerspooner later this month, opening for them on a series of 15 dates across the midwest, southwest, and west coast. As such, the band will play major venues like the Metro in Chicago, Avalon in Los Angeles, and the Fillmore in San Francisco.
OrganicArma is currently touring in support of its EP, Discordia, released this past February. A new one, Awarned, is slated for digital release on June 30.
