The following new tours were announced. Check the Tour Dates category every day for more.
FLASHER / PUBLIC PRACTICE / GONG GONG GONG
Post-punks Flasher, who released the very solid Constant Image earlier this year, announced a December US tour with past tourmates Public Practice and Gong Gong Gong, following the band's run in Europe. These US shows include stops in Brooklyn (Saint Vitus on 12/7), Cleveland, Washington D.C., Chicago, and Columbus. In addition, a tour-exclusive 7" with unreleased material from all three bands will be sold at these dates. Head here for all upcoming Flasher dates. Meanwhile, they've just released a rather amazing, head-trip and very meta video for "Material" that is like a days dive down a YouTube hole condensed into three minutes. The music video industry isn't what it used to be but this recalls the prime days of Michel Gondry and Spike Jonze. Watch:
GEORGE CLINTON & PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC
George Clinton is retiring from touring in 2019 but he's packing in tons of Parliament Funkadelic shows before then. They play Leesburg, VA tonight, NYC's Sony Hall on Friday (11/2), with upcoming shows in San Francisco, Berkeley, Santa Cruz, New Orleans and more. He won't be fully retired in 2019, either, as P-Funk have Australian festival dates in April. All dates are listed here.
Amanda Palmer announced that she'd be performing in Cyndi Lauper's 2018 "Home for the Holidays" concert, and now she's added a couple more area appearances, as well. Next week, she'll appear at a Get Out the Vote "After Vote Throw-Down" at City Winery on Tuesday (11/6) with previous collaborator Jherek Bischoff, The Front Bottoms vocalist Brian Sella, and Resistance Revival Chorus (tickets). Later this month on November 30, she hosts a second "Party in the Cemetery" at Colony in Woodstock, NY, with a live set from WEEKNIGHT and a DJ set from Mon Amine (tickets).
NEKO CASE / MARGARET GLASPY / KIMYA DAWSON
Neko Case did some touring behind this year's Hell-On during the summer, and she's since added a bunch more North American and Australian dates to her schedule, with killer support from Margaret Glaspy and Kimya Dawson on the US shows. Among Neko's North American stops include Boston, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Orlando, Austin, and many others. She also has a few dates opening for Destroyer (solo) later this month, after a brief stint in Europe. Find all upcoming dates here, and check out Neko's new animated video for "Last Lion Of Albion," which touches on the effects of climate change on animal habitats, below.

Tickets and full lineup can be found here.
Annie Clark and Thomas Bartlett currently have two of their stripped-down, piano-and-vocal shows coming up to support the new album MassEducation, which features MASSEDUCTION songs recorded in that stripped-down style. Both are in NYC: a sold-out BAM show on 11/20, and a just-announced "American Songbook" show at Lincoln Center's The Appel Room in February 2019.
