Delta Spirit @ Bonnaroo '09 (more by Graeme Flegenheimer)
Fans across the country can expect to hear twice as much from San Diego's Delta Spirit in the New Year. The band, who spent the first half of 2009 opening for The Shins, will be headlining their own bills come 2010 as they gear up for the release of their second LP, History from Below, this May. But in what may be a further evidence of a coming decade of music biz frugality practicality, the boys behind all that jingly, feelgood Americana are bowing out of a lower 48 push and playing just small venues in major cities -- twice apiece with a week to simmer in between sets. [Culture Mob]The full dates of The Delta Spirit's uniquely sequenced tour are below. They play four NYC shows as part of the trip, which kicks off February 1st - a gig at Pianos (2/4) followed by Union Hall (2/5), then the same sequence again a week later (2/11 & 2/12). California's The Willowz (think White Stripes) open. Tickets are on sale for the Pianos shows (Union Hall seems to be sold-out already).
The Willowz recently put out an album of their own, Everyone (Dim Mak/Downtown Records) in December. A 'Making Of' featurette for Everyone video and all tour dates are below...
