LOGIC / NF / KYLE
Ever-popular rapper Logic is fresh off releasing his Bobby Tarantino II mixtape (stream), and he has now announced “The Bobby Tarantino vs Everbody Tour” with Christian rapper NF and “iSpy” hitmaker KYLE. The tour includes MSG on 6/16, PNC Bank Arts Center on 6/17, and much more. All dates HERE.
Still busy touring last year’s excellent Crack-Up, Fleet Foxes just announced they’ll play Pitchfork Festival this summer, and other big outdoor events like Coachella, Boston Calling, and Shaky Knees. They’re newly updated tour schedule also includes just-added shows at Cincinnati’s Taft Theatre, Cleveland’s Agora Theatre, Montreal’s Corona Theatre, and more.
We wish the former Pulp frontman were announcing North American shows, but his upcoming UK tour — his first this decade — promised mostly new songs, which means he’s finally got a new record on the way.
ROLLING BLACKOUTS COASTAL FEVER
The Sub Pop-signed Australian band will be touring North America after their Coachella appearances, including an NYC show at Rough Trade on May 12. They’ve added a 5/12 late show at Rough Trade, among a few other dates.
EARTH WIND & FIRE
Funk/disco greats Earth, Wind & Fire continue to tour — you may have seen them with Chic last year — and their 2018 is a veritable boogie wonderland of concerts, including two shows at New Jersey’s NJPAC Prudential Hall on June 4 & 5, and Canandaigua, NY’s CMAC on August 29. All dates are here.
Psych folk band Wooden Shjips will release their first album in five years, which is simply titled V, on May 25 via Thrill Jockey. You can listen to “Staring at the Sun” from the record below. They’ll also be on tour in April, May and June, including a visit to Austin’s Levitation festival. No East Coast shows announced but all dates can be found here.
BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY & EYEHATEGOD
This triple threat of metal has expanded their tour to include two NYC-area shows in August and more.
A Frengers tour sounds pretty exciting, no?

Eighties pop punching bag Rick Astley rolls his way through North America in April, including an NYC-area show at Huntington, NY’s The Paramount on April 17. Click here for all tour dates…we swear it’s not a trick.
