We recently mentioned that Alejandro Escovedo, Ivan Julian (The Voidoids), Linda Pitmon (The Miracle 3, The Baseball Project) and veteran funk/soul/rock musician Nicholas Tremulis teamed up to form the band The Fauntleroys, who will release their debut EP, Below The Pink Pony, on September 16 via Cheetah Chrome's Plowboy Records.
They've yet to announce a tour, but we now know they'll be coming to NYC for shows on October 8 at Mercury Lounge and October 9 at Rough Trade. Tickets for those shows go on sale Friday (8/8) at noon, and the Merc show is currently on AmEx presale. We're not aware of any other dates at the moment but we'll update if more are announced.
