Walter Martin at Joe's Pub in May (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Walter Martin

The Walkmen's Walter Martin has lately been using the extreme-hiatus of the Walkmen to produce "family music." He's got a second album as such coming out, which is "all about visual artists," and he'll be previewing music from that project on an upcoming living room tour, where he plays solo sets in spaces provided by fans. There are no NYC dates, although there are several upstate NY, PA and NJ dates. Tickets for the whole tour are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

In other Walkmen-related news, Hamilton Leithauser, who is still on tour, just covered "I Need A Lover" by John Cougar (Mellencamp) for the AV Undercover series at the AV Club. You can see the results of that, with the list of Walter's dates, below...
