The following new tours were announced. Check the Tour Dates category every day for more.
CHRIS FARREN / RETIREMENT PARTY / MACSEAL
Chris Farren's new album Born Hot came out this past Friday via Polyvinyl, and today he added a NYC show to his 2020 tour with Retirement Party and Macseal. The newly-added show happens 1/31 at Elsewhere Zone One. All dates here.
Cult fave punks The Spits are playing some shows this December, including a two-night run in Brooklyn happening at Saint Vitus on December 8 & 9, with Hank Wood & the Hammerheads and Phantasia on night one and Murderer and Brandy on night two. They also play Chicago on 12/10. No word on other dates besides those three at the moment but stay tuned.
Bridget Everett is best known as a comedian, but she shows off her dramatic chops in Netflix’s powerful new series Unbelievable. If you still like to see the more unexpurgated side of Bridget Everett, have no fear, she still performs stand-up and also has her musical-comedy revue with her band The Tender Moments. They've added more shows to their fall residency at NYC's Joe's Pub, with seven performances between October 25 - November 16.
Lucy Dacus is on tour now, which includes an upcoming Northeast run with Haley Heynderickx that hits NYC's Webster Hall on December 5. She has now added a New Year's run happening at Philly venue Johnny Brenda's, including shows on 12/29 with McKinley Dixon, 12/30 with Angelica Garcia, and New Year's Eve with Mal Blum and Addy. Tickets for those shows are on sale now. Lucy was also just announced on the Okeechobee 2020 lineup today. All dates here.
Thom Yorke, whose great new album ANIMA is out now, has added more tour dates, including a show at NYC's iconic Radio City Music Hall. A BrooklynVegan presale for that show starts Thursday (10/17).
Vampire Weekend are continuing to add dates in support of their excellent new album Father of the Bride. Just today, they were announced for the ALT 9.23 holiday show at Brooklyn's Barclays Center with Jimmy Eat World, Mumford & Sons, and more; and Okeechobee 2020. They were also recently announced for the South American Lollapaloozas, and they have other dates through October 2020. All are listed here.
Having just played Rolling Loud NYC, Dave East added a Playstation Theater show to his tour. He'll be the second to last artist to ever perform at the NYC venue, which closes for good after a Disco Biscuits New Year's run that starts the next night.
JIMMY EAT WORLD
That big ALT 9.23 holiday show is the only upcoming chance to catch Jimmy Eat World in NYC, but you can see them at a couple smaller places not far from the city. Their headlining fall tour hits The Chance in Poughkeepsie and Starland Ballroom in NJ this November.
SHELTER / MIL-SPEC / CONSTANT ELEVATION
Krishnacore legends Shelter have announced two rare NY & NJ shows with rising Toronto hardcore band Mil-Spec and fellow NY band Constant Elevation, the new project from Vinnie Caruana (The Movielife) and Sammy Siegler (Youth of Today, Judge, etc).
DAVID BAZAN 'STRANGE NEGOTIATIONS' DOCUMENTARY
David Bazan resurrected Pedro the Lion in 2017 after walking away from the group — and his faith. New documentary Strange Negotiations follows Bazan a decade into his solo career as the 2016 election looms and he begins to consider bringing his former band back. The film debuted at SXSW, and screened in NYC over the summer as part of Rooftop Films; next it will be screening in select cities this fall (with Q&As with director Vedder) ahead of its digital release on November 19.
