Devendra Banhart stole my basketball (CRED)
Devendra Banhart & Sarah Foster

Devendra Banhart's new album Vasu Deva Kutumbam is out later this year - probably some time around September 1st because that's when he kicks of a 1.5 month North American tour in Vancouver. He hits the Grand Ballroom @ Manhattan Center in Manhattan, NYC on on September 27th. The venue holds about as many as Webster, and is connected to Hammerstein Ballroom, but isn't actually Hammerstein Ballroom - it's where Polyphonic Spree recently was. There may be general admission seating. Matteah Baim and Death's Groove are opening for him (at the NYC show at least), and $35 tickets are now on sale.

All tour dates, and the now infamous message he recently posted on his MySpace, below...
