Pokey LaFarge Extends Nationwide Tour

Pokey LaFarge will continue his extensive nationwide tour this August including newly added west coast dates in Solana Beach, Los Angeles, Santa Cruz, San Francisco, Grass Valley, Portland, Seattle and Vancouver. Tickets go on-sale this Friday, June 9. These new performances expand an already impressive tour, which includes stops at Chicago’s Metro, Nashville’s Mercy Lounge, New York’s Bowery Ballroom and Rough Trade and Philadelphia’s World Café Live. See below for complete details.

Recorded in LaFarge’s hometown of St. Louis, Manic Revelations features 10 new original songs and was produced by the Southside Collective—LaFarge, Joey Glynn (bass), Ryan Koenig (harmonica, guitjo, electric guitar), Adam Hoskins (electric guitar), Matt Meyer (drums, percussion), Luc Klein (trumpet, euphonium, piano, glockenspiel), Alec Spiegelman (saxophone, piano, tubax, organ, clarinet, flute), David Beeman (tambourine, stylophone, guitar, organ)—along with additional production by Tony Hoffer.

“The manic revelation is the state where artists create,” says LaFarge. “I got to the point in writing these songs where I felt like a house on fire that just kept burning.” He continues, “This album is about confronting yourself. It’s about confronting your city, its relation with the world, and all its people.”
