Sometimes, to see how far you’ve come, you have to look back at your beginnings. For multi-instrumentalist, BRYCE AVARY of THE ROCKET SUMMER, his evolution into the powerpop/indie rock powerhouse that he is becoming has origins in his dynamic and explosive entrance into the mainstream ten years ago with his breakthrough album DO YOU FEEL. Before he embarks into his evolution forward, Avary will be stepping out of the studio where he is working on new music to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of a special album for TRS fans by performing the album for the first time ever in its entirety.The Do You Feel 10 Year Anniversary Tour kicks off in his home state of Texas on July 20 at Austin’s Antone’s and circles North America, hitting venues such as Dallas’ Trees (July 21), NYC’s Gramercy Theatre (August 3), Toronto’s The Mod Club (August 8), Chicago’s The Bottom Lounge (August 12), SF’s Slim’s (Aug. 24), and Los Angeles’ The Roxy (August 25).
