Kurt Vile Announces Fall Tour

Perhaps in the spirit of the upcoming midterm elections (November 6), Kurt Vile has announced a politically-themed tour. The announcement was accompanied with a tongue-in-cheek press bio about his backing band the Violators “running on their non-partisan platform known as rock n’ roll.”

They’re making “campaign stops” (read: tour dates – Vile is not running for a political position, as far as we know) across North America, beginning in Boston’s House of Blues on November 24 before concluding at the Riviera Theatre in Chicago on December 22.

Several dates will feature Jessica Pratt as support. Like Arcade Fire and St. Vincent before him, Vile will donate $1 per ticket sold to the PLUS1 charity.
