Patrick Watson Embarks On Longest U.S. Tour To Date


Patrick Watson
This May, Patrick Watson & The Wooden Arms - frontman Patrick Watson, guitarist Simon Angell, drummer Robbie Kuster and bassist Mishka Stein - will set off on their longest U.S. tour to date, starting in Brooklyn, ending at the Sasquatch! Festival, and playing their largest U.S. venues so far.

The Montreal-based band, whose 2009 album Wooden Arms (Secret City) set the stage for breakout success, are, says Entertainment Weekly, "a beguiling, bewitching treat, like absinthe-laced gumdrops: part rickety graveyard waltz, part hand-over-heart chamber pop, part avant-garde piano theater."

"If Jeff Buckley, Syd Barrett, Bertolt Brecht, and Erik Satie were all to rise from the grave and team up with Tom Waits, the results might sound something like Patrick Watson & the Wooden Arms," raves Guitar Player.

Those wanting to see what NPR calls "a brilliant band... performing vibrant, thoughtful and textured pop music" will have 12 opportunities in May. But beware: as CNN warns, " At a Patrick Watson concert, no kitchen utensil is safe, no car parts are off limits, and nowhere is out of bounds."
