Quadron opening for Mayer Hawthorne; Ricky Eat Acid opening for Rhye (Robin Hannibal won’t be on either tour)
you probably won’t see this guy on tour any time soon
R&B duo Quadron, whose Robin Hannibal is also one half of Rhye, are currently on the road supporting Mayer Hawthorne, and will be touring with them through early March. That tour hits NYC on February 27 at Webster Hall and February 28 at Warsaw, with Quadron opening on both dates. Tickets for those shows are still available. All dates are listed below.
As mentioned, Rhye are also playing shows around that time, including NYC on February 21 at Webster Hall, which is sold out.
However, as Daily News points out, you won’t see Robin Hannibal at either of those, as he chooses not to tour. From the Daily News interview:
Q: So it has nothing to do with you being too shy to be on stage?
A: No, no. I’ve been on stage several times, but it doesn’t give me satisfaction. What makes my clock tick and makes me excited is writing songs and making the music. … Most people often don’t know how long it takes to make 3 ½ minutes of music. It’s a long process… and that’s my complete focus.
Plus, my chops now as a musician aren’t as good as they once were. That’s why I think Coco and I work so well. She’s an amazing performer and I’m not.
This may not come as a surprise if you’ve been following either band or caught them live in the past. He’s a producer for both, but doesn’t tour.
Since we last spoke, Ricky Eat Acid (Sam Ray of Julia Brown/Teen Suicide) has been added as an opener for Rhye’s Webster Hall show. If you don’t have tickets to that show but still want to catch him, you can do so much sooner at the previously discussed Gem Club show at Mercury Lounge on Sunday (2/2), which also has Foxes in Fiction on the bill. Tickets for that show are still available.
Meanwhile, Sam’s other band Teen Suicide is going on a previously discussed tour with Special Explosion, Alex G and Sorority Noise which hits NYC on February 27 at Suburbia.
