Arto Lindsay & Beauty Pill touring together
No wave legend and experimental composer Arto Lindsay is going on a short tour this year with eccentric indie rockers Beauty Pill, who were formed in the early 2000s out of the ashes of Dischord band Smart Went Crazy and released their first album in 11 years in 2015. "It’s an honor and a thrill to be asked to tour with Arto Lindsay, an artist who is a longtime hero and direct influence on my work. He’s 20 years older than I am and I’m deeply grateful to have the opportunity to osmotically absorb his mastery on a nightly basis," said Beauty Pill leader Chad Clark.
The tour includes a NYC show on April 28 at The Bell House. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (2/24) at noon.
All dates on the tour have Arto backed by a band, except the Portland, ME show where he'll be playing solo. All dates are listed, with a stream of Beauty Pill's 2015 album and an Arto Lindsay video, below.
