PLAYS WESTERN STATES
For the first time in many years, one of the great American bands going today, Richmond Fontaine, venture from their native Portland to perform a handful of dates in California, Nevada, Washington, Colorado and Utah.
Despite regular tours in the United Kingdom and Europe since 2004's critically hailed Post To Wire, a contemporary rock classic followed by several more including their newly released Thirteen Cities, the band rarely gigs in the States. This tour will highlight the new album, which features guest appearances from Calexico’s Joey Burns and Jacob Valenzuela and Giant Sand’s Howe Gelb and was produced by longtime Dwight Yoakam and Richard Buckner collaborator JD Foster. Anyone who's ever flipped for Wilco, Bruce Springsteen or Tom Waits cheats themselves if they miss this rare opportunity to see one of JamBase's favorite bands live.
