Kathryn Calder on stage with The New Pornographers (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Kathryn Calder of New Pornographers

Kathryn Calder, possibly best known for her contributions to a certain supergroup that contains her uncle, is currently on the road with Himalayan Bear on the West Coast. The dates are in support of Are You My Mother?, her own album which dropped in August of last year. So far a full slate of dates on the Eastside have yet to be determined, but NYC has a show to call their own: Mercury Lounge on June 14th. Tickets go on AmEx presale at noon on Wed (5/11) and regular sale on Friday. All dates are listed below.

Meanwhile Neko Case is going about to embark on a dueling tour that kicks off on 5/11 in Rhode Island and makes a stop at Bearsville Theatre in Woodstock, NY one day later. If you're confused about the date of the Woodstock show, it might be because it was supposed to happen in February but was postponed due to bad weather. All current dates are listed below, Pitchfork Fest included.

The New Pornographers have upcoming dates at both the previously discussed B.O.M.B. Fest in CT on May 29, and Festival for Humanity in Vernon, NJ on May 30th. The band's video for "Sweet Talk" in support of Oxfam's Gulf relief efforts has been nominated for an Emmy. If you havent seen it, check it out below along with all tour dates.
