It’s been three years since Fountains of Wayne released their last studio album, the acclaimed Traffic And Weather. A new album is scheduled to drop in early 2011, but fans can get a generous dose of new material on a short tour beginning at the end of this month.
The road trip begins Sept. 30 in San Diego at The Casbah, plays West Hollywood’s Troubadour Oct. 1 and stops at San Francisco’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival Oct. 2.
Two days later FOW lands on the East Coast, playing Alexandria, Va., at The Birchmere Oct. 4-5; NYC’s Bowery Ballroom Oct. 7; Boston’s Paradise Oct. 8 and Pearl Street in Northampton, Mass., Oct. 9.
Last three dates on the current schedule are Oct. 12 in Pennsylvania at Sellersville Theatre; Oct. 13 in Pawtucket, R.I., at Met Café and Oct. 14 in Portland, Maine, at Port City Music Hall.
Marshall Crenshaw and Jill Sobule open on select dates. For more information, click here for the Fountains Of Wayne website.
