THE HOLD STEADY
The Hold Steady announced weekend-long runs in Philly/Asbury Park, San Francisco, and Toronto, and before that, they’ll play a Stay Positive 10th anniversary show in Jersey City.
Sloan are touring the East Coast as we speak — they play NYC on Thursday (5/10) — in support of their terrific 12th album. They’ve just announced fall tour dates that include the South, Southwest and Midwest. All dates and ticket links here.
Shakey Graves returned last week with his new album Can’t Wake Up, which ditches the roots rock vibe he’s been known for in favor of something weirder, poppier, more psychedelic, more heavily layered, etc. It’s not the Shakey Graves you’re used to at all, and it’s very worth a listen. He’s about to start a mostly-sold-out tour with And The Kids this week, which includes a sold-out show at NYC’s Brooklyn Steel on May 17 (among many other dates), and today he added many more North American dates for late summer and fall. The newly-added dates include a larger NYC show on September 22 at Terminal 5 with The Wild Reeds. Shakey Graves’ tour also includes a Red Rocks show with Jose Gonzalez and Twin Peaks, and much more. All dates and tickets HERE. Stream the new album:
