AS CITIES BURN / ALL GET OUT / MANY ROOMS
Post-hardcore band As Cities Burn will be releasing their first post-reunion LP Scream Through The Walls in June, and they’ll be bringing the album out on tour this summer with two cool support acts: from South Carolina indie rockers All Get Out and Houston singer/songwriter Many Rooms. The tour begins in Little Rock, before other shows in Chicago, Houston, LA, Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, Louisville, Denver, and lots more. Tickets to all dates are on sale now.
ANI DIFRANCO (BOOK AND CONCERT TOURS)
Prolific songwriter Ani DiFranco will have a very busy 2019; her new memoir No Walls and the Recurring Dream drops early next month, and she’ll be promoting the book on tour, which entails Ani reading passages from the book, and discussing the memoir with a moderator. The book tour hits NYC for a sold-out event at Tishman Auditorium at The New School on 5/7, where Ani will be in conversation with former Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards (more info here). Ani also makes stops in Washington D.C., Chicago, Austin, and more. Shortly after that tour wraps up, Ani will head out on a proper concert tour with her backing band, stopping in Houston, Milwaukee, Fargo, Cleveland Heights, Woodstock, and other cities, with support from Dianne Patterson and Lucy Wainwright on select shows. Tickets to the concert tour go on sale Friday (4/12). Ani’s also got an upcoming appearance at New Orleans Jazz Fest on 5/3. Check here for all Ani DiFranco dates.
Queen Latifah’s most recent addition to her very long resume is her recurring role in the Fox TV show Star, but the hip hop veteran will be returning to the stage for a few upcoming concerts happening throughout the year. She’s got a Long Island stop at NYCB Theatre at Westbury on 7/14, and further dates in Washington D.C., Highland Park, and Uncasville. Tickets to all dates (except DC) go on sale Friday (4/12) at 10 AM. Find all dates here.
