Though the solo debut of Julian Plenti (aka Paul Banks of Interpol) has been out for over a month, the singer still hasn't played any shows. His official live debut takes place September 25th gig at the Guggenheim Museum, as part of its It Came From Brooklyn series (which brought the Walkmen and High Places in August). Also on the bill are I'm In You, authors Rivka Galchen and Hampton Fancher, and host Eugene Mirman. Tickets are still on sale to that show. We also has a pair to give away - details are below.
Past that it looks like Julian will be going on a North American tour in November, though not many dates are public yet. NYC was announced though, and the shows are November 24th at Bowery Ballrom and November 25th at Brooklyn Bowl. Ticket info TBA (on sale Friday?). He's also scheduled to play Europe in December.
