tours announced: Cut Copy, Ty Segall, June of 44, RTJ’s DJ Trackstar, more
The following new tours were announced. Check the Tour Dates category every day for more.
Cut Copy was just in Austin to play a single SXSW show, which like Sylvan Esso, was at Lustre Pearl and sponsored by M&M's. Unfortunately, their short set was plagued with technical issues. Maybe things will go better this week when they return to Texas (Dallas and Austin) to begin a series of North American headline shows that ends in Mexico just over a week later. They have more U.S. shows (including lots of DJ gigs) scheduled in June though, Governors Ball in NYC and both weeks of Electric Forest included. The band also just released the vide for "Black Rainbows" which is off last year's Haiku from Zero. Watch that below:
Ty Segall, whose latest album, Freedom's Goblin, came out in January, will kick off his North American tour with backing group The Freedom Band on Tuesday (4/3) in Las Vegas and will make his way eastward, where he's got NYC-area shows at Brooklyn Steel (4/13) and Port Chester's Capitol Theatre (4/13). He'll head to Europe in May, and all dates are here. As to what's next from Ty -- his appearance at Desert Daze in October pairs him with former collaborators White Fence. Maybe there will be a sequel to their 2012 album?
Superchunk‘s spring tour supporting this year’s terrific What A Time to Be Alive begins next week and includes two sold-out NYC shows with Swearin’. The band will head to Europe right after that and on their way back they’ll stop in the NYC-area again to play Jersey City’s White Eagle Hall on June 20. All dates are here.
WAXAHATCHEE / HURRAY FOR THE RIFF RAFF / BEDOUINE
Hurray for the Riff Raff, Waxahatchee and Bedouine all released great records in 2017(Out in the Storm, The Navigator, and Bedouine, respectively) and their joint North American tour kicks off April 11 in Durham North Carolina and hits NYC for two shows: April 13 at Warsaw (tickets) and April 14 at Murmrr Ballroom (sold out). All three artists also have other dates besides their tour together and you can check out all dates for Waxahatchee (who will also be out with Courtney Barnett), Hurray for the Riff Raff and Bedouine.
JUNE OF 44
Louisville post-hardcore greats June of 44 have been broken up since the '90s but they have now announced reunion shows. So far they-re just playing Italy. Hopefully they play the US too!
CONTROL TOP / EMPATH
Philadelphia trio Control Top just began a short tour with neighbors Empath, whose new cassette, Liberating Guilt And Fear, just came out this week. It's four blasts of hazy punk that recalls Jay Reatard, early Wavves, or Times New Viking. You can stream the tape, via Stereogum, below. Tour dates include a stop at soon-to-close Silent Barn on Saturday (3/31).
LORDE, RUN THE JEWELS & MITSKI
The Lorde and Run The Jewels tour is well underway with Mitski now in the opening slot. The great triple bill hits Brooklyn on 4/4 and Newark two days later, among other places. Read about the LA show (where Tove Stryke opened).
After that tour ends, Run the Jewels’ tour DJ, DJ Trackstar, will do a special edition of Bowl Train at Brooklyn Bowl (4/26).
