The Brooklyn soul singer, with his horn-heavy live band, tours the US following the release of his exuberant new album, 99 Cent Dreams (Yep Roc). The LP marks a return to the timeless music Reed fell in love with as a young man – performing in the juke joints of Clarksdale, MS, and the Chicago church of Chess Records artist-turned-preacher Mitty Collier.
Rolling Stone praises Tolman for having “the sass of Nikki Lane mixed with the clever wordplay of Brandy Clark.” Tolman will bring that sass, along with a lifetime of experience growing up in Music City, to the stage with a backing band and will perform songs from her debut LP, There Goes The Neighborhood (7/19 via Old Sol Records).
Songwriter and guitarist John Darnielle, bassist Peter Hughes, drummer Jon Wurster and multi-instrumentalist Matt Douglas play some of their biggest venues to date on this extensive headlining US tour. These shows follow a busy 2018 for the band, in which they co-produced several episodes (and a live event) of the acclaimed podcast I Only Listen to the Mountain Goats; wrote a song for WWE professional wrestler Sasha Banks (at her request); and surprise-released the Hex of Infinite Binding EP, earning immediate praise from NPR and Pitchfork, noting the songs' “vivid characters, both real and fictionalized, [employed] as conduits for complicated ideas."
After winning a GRAMMY and selling out his first headlining Kennedy Center performance, the busiest man in R&B announces a career first: a “Keys & A Mic” tour.

The Burlington, VT, singer-songwriter deconstructing “toxic fraternity” on new album Gloria Duplex (Akira Records) presents his first headlining tour. Jamison has spent years honing his live chops touring internationally with Big Thief, Caroline Rose, Darlingside, Nick Hakim, Guster, and more. Rolling Stone recently praised Jamison’s “dreamy and downy soft, laced with orchestral strings and a Sufjan Stevens-worthy vocal" folk arrangements, which now will be fleshed out on stage with a full band.
From David Lynch’s Twin Peaks to touring with Kacey Musgraves and opening for Jenny Lewis at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, the Minneapolis blood-harmony brother duo now headlines a US tour for its “rich, vibrant” (NPR) new album, Easy Way.
