Founding Velvet Underground member John Cale will support his first studio album in seven years, Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood, with a quick handful of West coast tour dates. He won’t be alone, though, as nomadic songwriter Cass McCombs will tag along in support. Starting December 4th, the two will travel across the dreary Pacific Northwest and head south towards sunny San Francisco and Los Angeles. Odds are they’ll probably eat well.
Cale also has a few appearances lined up for next year in New York City, where he’ll perform at a tribute to Nico and unravel his 1973 pop masterpiece Paris 1919. Consult the full itinerary below, including his latest video for “Face to the Sky”.
