Walkmen frontman Hamilton Leithauser recently expanded his 2017 tour, and even more recently, breakout indie rocker Lucy Dacus was added as an opener to several dates. Lucy has been touring all year in support of her great debut album No Burden (which came out in February and was repressed by Matador in September).
Lucy's dates with Hamilton include all three NYC shows: Music Hall of Williamsburg on February 23 & 24, and Bowery Ballroom on February 25. The MHOW shows are sold out, but tickets for Bowery go on sale Friday (12/2) at noon. An AmEx presale for the show starts today (11/30) at noon. All dates are listed below.
Lucy says that at these shows...
We're going to be raising funds for local charities at the merch table for each of these shows, so if you know of a charity in any of these cities that focuses locally on education, environmentalism, human rights, civil liberties, youth incarceration, uplifting poc/queer/trans women, food banks, art funding or anything else I haven't mentioned that you believe in, please tell me in the comments!
Lucy also gave us a list of her ten favorite albums of 2016, including other young indie breakouts like Big Thief, Car Seat Headrest, Pinegrove, Julia Jacklin and The Lemon Twigs, other stuff like Kendrick Lamar and Blood Orange, and still more. Check out her full list below.
