Lee Ranaldo and the Dust touring, playing Maxwell’s (dates)
Lee Ranaldo Band at Prospect Park in 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Lee Ranaldo and the Dust (which appears to be the new name of the Lee Ranaldo Band, as the members -- Steve Shelley, Alan Licht, and Tim Luntzel -- are the same) will be kicking off an international tour soon, which includes dates in Europe and South America. Upon returning home, they'll play a NYC-area show on July 30 at Maxwell's, which will be one of the last shows to take place at the Hoboken venue. Support at the show comes from folk rockers Houndmouth. Tickets for the Maxwell's show are on sale now.
Lee's ex-Sonic Youth bandmate Kim Gordon plays Saint Vitus on Thursday (6/13) as one of half of the duo Body/Head with Bill Nace. That bill also includes Majical Cloudz, Foreplay, and "Special Guests." Tickets are still available.
