Come this November, two of the jam scene’s rising stars – Grace Potter & The Nocturnals and Brett Dennen – will join forces for a cross-country co-headlining tour. The two acts will split closing duties over the course of the 21-date trek – with Dennen holding down that slot for most of the run, while Potter & Co. will close in Boston, NYC and Philly.
Both acts have also been busy in the recording studio as Grace Potter & The Nocturnals will release their T-Bone Burnett produced album Medicine on November 27, while Dennen recently released a re-recorded version of his song Heaven with Nathalie Merchant – which currently available on iTunes.
If you’re not into a night with these two up and coming acts, than maybe you’ll be interested in hitting one of these recently announced tours…
- Aussie-rockers Wolfmother embark on a lengthy world tour
- The Swell Season bring their brand of folk-rock to a town near you
- White Rabbits head out for a twenty-date fall run
- Travis front man Fran Healy plans a special acoustic trek
- BLK JKS have a mix of festival and headlining gigs
- The Whigs bring The Features with them out on the road
Finally, indie-rock stalwarts Yo La Tengo, who will kick off their monster of a world tour that takes them 15 different countries over the course of the 46-date run, have announced that they will be skipping their semi-annual Hannukah run at Maxwell’s this year. Maybe it was Ira’s Jewish guilt that kicked in, but the band has beefed up the bill for their upcoming gig at New York’s Roseland Ballroom by adding Rockabilly act Susquehanna Industrial Tool & Die Co. who will perform in the lobby, as well as The Joshua White and Gary Panter’s Light Show. Athens’ flower-punk band The Black Lips, had previously been announced as the nights opening act.
