The Barr Brothers (Andrew and Brad Barr of The Slip) and Kishi Bashi (K Ishibashi of Jupiter One and touring member of of Montreal) have a few dates together this month including a NYC show TONIGHT (5/16) at Le Poisson Rouge. Tickets for that show are available.

Maybe you caught Kishi Bashi doing his vocal/violin set as an opening act on Of Montreal‘s tour. He released his debut album for the project, 151a, last month on Joyful Noise. There are some definite similarities to Owen Pallett, who also creates baroque art pop primarily with his violin and voice, though it’s a bit poppier than Owen. You can stream the entire album below. Kishi Bashi will also play a much larger NYC show when he opens for Dr. Dog at Summerstage (9/20) with Delta Spirit.

All dates are listed below, along with the 151a album stream…
