Blitzen Trapper at Webster Hall in 2011 (more by Kurt Christensen)
Blitzen Trapper

Portland folk rockers Blitzen Trapper, who just celebrated their 12th anniversary as a band, have added dates surrounding their run with Wilco, who they also play a pre-Newport Folk Festival show with. The new dates include a free'Concerts on the Oval' show at NYC's Stuyvesant Town Oval on July 14 and a not-free, Brooklyn show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on July 15. Tickets for the MHOW go on sale Friday (4/27) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (4/25) at noon. All dates are listed below.

The band just made a video for "Stranger in a Strange Land" off their 2011 LP, American Goldwing. The video was created by filmmaker Luke Norby and Blitzen Trapper drummer Brian Adrian Koch. You can watch it below.

They also released a Record Store Day 7" with a cover of "Hey Joe" and the previously unreleased Blitzen Trapper song, "Skirts on Fire." Sub Pop pressed a limited 1,800 copies of the 7" on yellow vinyl. It's currently going for pretty cheap on eBay and you can try your luck with some of the downloads that are out there. Stream "Skirts on Fire" here.
