PATRICK WATSON & THE WOODEN ARMS' MAY U.S. TOUR IS LONGEST TO DATE
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."
