The following new tours were announced. Check the Tour Dates category every day for more.
Vein’s errorzone is one of the best new albums to come out of this whole hardcore/nu metal crossover (it kinda sounds like Slipknot meets Converge) and they’ve been touring like crazy behind it all year. They just began their tour with Every Time I Die, Turnstile, and Angel Du$t last night, and that leads up to Every Time I Die’s holiday show in Buffalo. After that, they play Snowed In Fest in Cleveland, and a just-added headlining Brooklyn show on 12/22 at Saint Vitus. They also open the West Coast/Southwest leg of Thursday’s tour in 2019. All dates here.
PRESERVATION HALL JAZZ BAND

Tickets for the NYC shows are still available, and check here for all upcoming dates.

After a few European shows, veteran folk songwriter Suzanne Vega will be doing an intimate set of shows at NYC’s Cafe Carlyle from 3/5 to 3/16, titled “Suzanne Vega Sings Her New York Songs at the Carlyle.” Having gone to school in NYC and written some of her best-known material here, she’ll be performing “songs about the city she loves.” Tickets for the NYC run are on sale now, and all dates can be found here.
Jonathan just released a new album, SA, that both incorproates Indian raga textures into his sound but also tips its hat to that iconic first Modern Lovers album (Jerry Harrison plays on the new one). Always worth seeing live, JoJo will be on the road with drummer Tommy Larkins in 2019.
