At last year’s SXSW music fest, John McCauley of Deer Tick, Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes and Matt Vasquez of Delta Spirit debuted their new roots-rock supergroup, which at the time was dubbed MG&V after their collective last names. After a busy 2010 for the members’ full time bands, and a name change to Middle Brother, the act has announced that not only will their long awaited self-titled debut finally come out on March 1, but that they will hit the road for a 13-date March tour that will also include select dates where both Deer Tick and Dawes will also perform as the opening acts.
If you’re not into a night with the roots-rock supergroup, then maybe you’ll be interested in hitting one of these recently announced tours…
- Jam-pop act Guster are currently out in support of their new album

Finally, this spring, the odd pairing of Rod Stewart and Stevie Nicks will hit the road together for the Heart & Soul Tour. The co-headlining arena run, which is currently scheduled for just fourteen dates, will feature the two icons of 1970s rock performing their greatest hits. Rod and Stevie’s Heart & Soul Tour kicks off on March 20 at the Bank Atlantic Center in Sunrise, FL.
