NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS
Nick Cave spent time performing songs on piano and acapella as part of his “Conversations With” Q&A tour, which wrapped up this week in LA, and he’ll soon bring The Bad Seeds on a proper tour behind the devastatingly gorgeous Ghosteen. He’ll tour Europe and the UK beginning in April 2020, including shows in London, Dublin, Copenhagen, Prague, and many others, before a final stop in Tel Aviv, Israel. There are no US dates as of now, but check here for the most current dates.
Beach Fossils, whose last LP was 2017’s Somersault, recently announced a show at the newly-opened, intimate NYC venue The Dance on Halloween, and now they’ve added a second date at the venue on 10/30. Like their Halloween show, this newly-added date will also feature some surprise guests, and these are their only headlining dates aside from festival appearances at Tropicalia Fest in LA and Post Malone’s Posty Fest in Arlington, TX next month.
Radiohead’s Thom Yorke will be bringing his Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes tour back to North America in the spring in continued support of new album Anima. His NYC date at Radio City Music Hall sold out quick, and he’s added a second NYC show, this one at Hammerstein Ballroom.
CHELSEA WOLFE / IOANNA GIKA
Chelsea Wolfe returned this year with the haunting Birth of Violence, and she’ll bring those impactful songs on an acoustic tour with Sargent House labelmate Ioanna Gika, starting at San Diego’s Observatory North Park tonight (10/18). Afterwards, she’ll play her previously-announced show at NYC’s Brooklyn Steel on 11/1, in addition to other dates in Philly, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Nashville, Austin, Tucson, Vancouver, and more. Following these North American dates, she’s got several 2020 dates over in Europe and the UK. Find all dates here.
New Orleans bounce pioneer Big Freedia is heading out on a fall tour, which begins next week in Atlanta, and she’ll bring along Philly rock and rollers Low Cut Connie on select dates. Dates include a pair of shows at NYC’s Brooklyn Bowl dubbed “Freedia Fest 6.0,” happening on Halloween and November 1, both of which feature opener Mykki Blanco. She’ll also play shows in Washington DC, Chicago, Cleveland, Portland, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, St. Louis, and lots more. You can head here for all dates.
DRUG COUPLE (MILES BENJAMIN ANTHONY ROBINSON)
Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson hasn’t released an album in 10 years but he’s now resurfaced as one half of Drug Couple (the other half being Becca Chodorkoff of Rosebug). Their debut EP is out in November and they’ve got a couple NYC shows on the horizon: October 23 at Union Pool and November 18 at The Broadway.
PETER BJORN AND JOHN
Swedish indie pop vets Peter Bjorn and John will celebrate their 20th anniversary in 2020 with the release of their ninth album, Endless Dream, that will be out March 13. Right after that they’ll head to North American for a tour with stops in Oakland, Portland, Seattle, Denver, Chicago, Detroit, DC, Philly, NYC, Boston and more.

Country music icon Dolly Parton and disco legends Nile Rodgers and Chic will play an NYC benefit show for Rodgers’ We Are Family Foundation next month.
