tours announced: Brutus, A$AP Ferg, Vic Ruggiero/Scott Sturgeon, more
The following new tours were announced. Check the Tour Dates category every day for more.
VIC RUGGIERO with SCOTT STURGEON and more
We mentioned earlier this year that NYC ska vets The Slackers had upcoming shows, and one of those is a Rocks Off Cruise in NYC happening this Friday (7/16). The day after that boat show, The Slackers’ Vic Ruggiero plays a solo show in Brooklyn at El Cortez (8/17), and making that show even more exciting is an opening set from Scott Sturgeon of Leftover Crack and Choking Victim. All of Vic’s dates are here.
Brutus’ genre-defying punk/metal/pop/etc hybrid Nest (out now on Sargent House) is one of the year’s best albums in any rock subgenre, and it was very exciting to recently learn that the Belgian band would be coming to the US for some shows and festivals this fall. They’ve since added more dates, including shows in Chicago, Somerville, and Philly, in addition to their previously announced dates in LA and NYC. They also play Levitation, Voodoo, and Dia De Los Deftones, and they tour Europe with Cult of Luna. All dates here. To get a taste of what to expect on this tour, check out this just-released, pro-shot live video:
