Kurt Vile

In addition to the previously discussed dates with J Mascis which include Music Hall of Williamsburg on 3/25 (tickets) and the sold-out Mercury Lounge on 3/24, Kurt Vile has added a round of even-sooner free acoustic in-store appearances to help promote his new LP Smoke Ring For My Halo which come out on 3/8 via Matador (pictured above). Download both "Jesus Fever" and "In My Time" from that LP above. Full tracklist below.

After four other east coast dates Kurt Vile will play three in-stores in NYC on March 8th. At 5pm you can catch him at Academy in Brooklyn (96 N.6th) with Northampton Wools (Bill Nace + Thurston Moore). That's followed by a 7pm show at Generation Records and finally a 9pm show at Other Music.

All dates, the flyer for the acoustic tour, and the new album tracklisting, are below...

The Red Onion store in DC is approximately 4 square feet -- where on earth will he play in there?
