After covering Yanni with Beck, what else could Tortoise do to stay musically primed and ready (you know, until they do a follow up to Beacons of Ancestorship). Well, how about a tour? But not a great big tour, but one with just enough festival dates. That should be fine. For now.
With a single gig at the end of July in Chicago, IL, most of the tour’s dates cover a show a day from September 2nd in Buffalo, NY to the closer on September 12th in Washington, DC. However, during that span, they’ll make stops at Moe. Down, ATP New York, and the Hopscotch Music Festival. Plus, with so much time between gigs, you have to think these post-rockers will add more gigs. Please?
As always, stay tuned for more tour dates and news as it’s announced. In the mean time, get your tickets at Ticketmaster.com.
