Jarvis Cocker Plots Summer Tour

Jarvis Cocker's forthcoming second solo album is certainly high on our list of must-haves for the year. Given that, we were stoked to see that Cocker has planned a brief summer tour, with a few notable US stops. Sadly, if you're not on one of the coasts, you're out of luck: the tour's only US stops are in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Lucky us!

Cocker's SF stop will be at The Fillmore, and having seen his 2007 show at the same venue, we can assure you that this is one you won't want to miss. The combination of Cocker's epic showmanship with San Francisco's most notable venue is just way too sweet to pass up. Combine that with a whole album's worth of material, and well, you get the idea. Tickets are on sale now.
