Bobby Bare Jr. Announces U.S. Tour

The eccentric singer/songwriter will hit the road behind The Longest Meow next month.

After recording eleven songs in eleven hours with eleven different musicians (including members of My Morning Jacket and …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead) for The Longest Meow, Bobby Bare Jr. is set to headline select U.S. dates.
