Readers of this blog are probably already familiar with the actress Jenny Lewis from her guest appearance in the fourth episode of our (still on hiatus) web series, Treasure of the Cisne:
Well, in addition to being a talented actress/magician, Lewis moonlights as a talented musician/magician, playing in the indie-rock band, Rilo Kiley. What does that have to do with us? Well, it turns out that we will be opening for them on a few dates on their upcoming tour! What dates? What venues? Here are your answers:
05/18 - Colorado Springs, CO - The Black Sheep
05/19 - Denver, CO - Odgen Theater
05/20 - Omaha, NE - Slowdown
05/21 - Omaha, NE - Slowdown again!
05/22 - Minneapolis, MN - First Avenue
05/23 - Milwaukee, WI - Pabst Theater
05/24 - Chicago, IL - Riviera Theater
05/25 - Royal Oak, MI - Royal Oak Music Theater
05/26 - Cleveland, OH - House of Blues
Did we mention that Nik Freitas will also be playing these shows?! Well, he is! Also, I heard that if provoked, Jenny Lewis sometimes will perform the "banana trick" live on stage. Won't you come join us and see?
After that stint, we will embark upon what journalists are already calling the "underappreciated cities tour". We have either never played or rarely play these wonderful cities:
05/27 - Rochester, NY - The Bug Jar
05/29 - Pittsburgh, PA - Lava Lounge
05/30 - Indianapolis, IN - Radio Radio
Wait, so what is the Spinto Band doing with all of these "tour dates"? Shouldn't they have that album out by now? Good question. We really should have that album out now, and every day it gets closer to being put out. In the meantime, we're working on things. We really are.
