Vetiver at BXSXSW 2011 (more by Ryan Barkan)

San Francisco's Vetiver will tour the East Coast tour next month, with two upcoming NYC shows: He'll play Glasslands on September 21 and then the recently-relocated ATP NY the next night (9/22). Tickets to Glasslands and ATP are on sale now.

Joining Vetiver for the tour will be Brooklyn's Habibi, who you can see this Sunday, August 5, the kickoff of this year's Sound Bites Series at the Fulton Stall Market (which, full disclosure, I curate). The show is free and happens at 3PM sharp. I'll be DJing before the band if you care to come early. I interviewed Habibi singer Rahill Jamalifard over at Sound Bites who relayed this anecdote about touring with King Tuff earlier this year:

We played at Johnny Brendas in Philly... They were kind enough to bring out a generous sized hummus plate for us and King Tuff before our show. The King Tuff boys hadn't come into the bar yet and we basically bodied the whole thing and did some heavy heavy damage, to the point where the manager asked us kindly to please leave some for the other band. We laughed inside but cried a little too.
OK Vetiver, you've been warned. Guard your snacks. All Vetiver/Habibi tour dates are listed below.
