WEEZER / PIXIES
Veteran alt-rock bands Weezer (who just announced that The Black Album will come out in 2019) and Pixies already did one co-headlining tour this past summer, and they’ll be doing it again in spring 2019. The tour includes stops in Louisville, Montreal, Baltimore, Memphis, Des Moines, Vancouver, Las Vegas, and more. No NYC shows on this run (the closest they come is Albany and Connecticut), but Pixies will be in NYC before this tour for their Come On Pilgrim/Surfer Rosa shows in November. Tickets for the Weezer/Pixies tour go on sale Friday (10/19). Check out all dates here.
LIL UGLY MANE (with NO WARNING and more)
Lil Ugly Mane, who was last supposed to play a couple NYC shows as a member of Secret Circle (before they broke up), is now heading out on a tour of his own. He’ll be joined by hardcore punks No Warning for most of these shows, and he’ll be stopping in many US cities, including Cleveland, NYC (Brooklyn Bazaar on 11/5), Chicago, Columbus, Philadelphia, and more. The Brooklyn show doesn’t include No Warning, and instead is with Tommy Wright III, Nickelus F, Stigmatism, and Terrorist. Find all dates here.
With his upcoming covers album out on October 26, Ty Segall has hit the road. He’s wrapping up a tour where he’s playing with White Fence, that hits Desert Daze this weekend, and then his solo acoustic tour starts next week which will go coast to coast.
