Kishi Bashi has announced a tour celebrating the 10th anniversary of his beloved debut album, 151a. The March/April 2022 run will take Kishi Bashi and his full band throughout the eastern U.S. and into Canada, and see them performing the album in full alongside additional songs from his catalog. A current itinerary is below and tickets go on sale this Friday, December 10th at 12pm local time HERE.
Released in 2012 via Joyful Noise Recordings, 151a established Kishi Bashi—née Kaoru Ishibashi—as an artist to watch in his own right, following years performing as a multi-instrumentalist with artists including Regina Spektor and Of Montreal.
In April, Kishi Bashi released his acclaimed Emigrant EP, a six-song collection that serves as a time capsule of 2020 as it meditates on the anxieties of the COVID-19 pandemic, the comforts of nature, the pains of resource-fueled conflicts, and the resiliency that emerges from struggle.
