Jesse Winchester hits New Jersey, New York, Arkansas and Colorado next year; Magnetic Fields adds a New York date for February and Janet Robin adds Southern California dates.
We started off the day by adding the first tour for matchbox twenty since 2003. As the day went on we plugged in new dates for Johnny Winter, Little Charlie & The Nightcats, Peter Rowan, Red Molly, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Robbie Fulks, Seth Walker, Sean Costello, Steve Forbert, The Claire Lynch Band. The Iguanas, The Smokin' Joe Kubek Band feat. Bnois King, The Walkmen, Tony Rice, Eric Bibb, Eilen Jewell, Dave Alvin Chris Smither, Blue Highway and Chilliwack. In fact, if you were to put all the dates we posted today end-to-end, they'd reach all the way to infinity and back.
But that's going to do it for today. Drive carefully and we'll be here bright and early tomorrow with more concert dates to help you make it through this thing called life. Cheers!
