Bill Callahan at the Allen Room in 2012 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Bill Callahan

Bill Callahan released his fourth post-Smog solo album, Dream River, via Drag City this week (9/17). It's a country-esque flute-filled album that you can pick up at the Drag City webstore. A video of him playing one of its tracks, "Small Plane," in NYC's 6th & B Community Garden for NPR's Field Recording sessions is below.

Bill's tour in support of the album begins with a boat show in his current hometown of Austin this Sunday (9/22) and makes it way to NYC for a previously discussed show at Webster Hall on October 6. Since we last spoke, outsider artist Lonnie Holley has been added to that show. Tickets for Webster Hall are still available. A bunch of European shows for 2014 were just added to Bill's touring schedule, and you can check out the updated list of dates below.

The day after the Webster Hall show, BAM (10/7) will be showing a screening of his new-ish tour documentary, Apocalypse: A Bill Callahan Tour Film, in the Peter Jay Sharp Building at BAM Rose Cinemas at 7:30 PM. Bill Callahan himself will be appearing at the screening for a "reverse Q&A" which takes place after, where he asks the audience questions about the documentary.

Updated dates are listed, along with that video, below...
