The “HARD Summer Tour” kicks off August 6 at the Fox Theatre in Oakland, Calif., and will make its way across the U.S. and Canada through the end of the month with stops in 12 cities including Denver, Austin, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia and New York City.
Besides Destructo, dance-punk duo Crystal Castles, U.K. dubstep wizard Rusko and fellow Brit Sinden, the rotating lineup for the party is expected to include several other soon-to-be-announced acts assembled by Richards and Chicago agent Tom Windish, who has his finger firmly on the pulse of what’s happening in the electro and indie music worlds.
