Kurt Vile Extends Tour Into The Fall

Kurt Vile at Amnesia, from the HAD Archive

It's no secret that we love Kurt Vile here at HAD, so we were psyched to see that he's extended his fall tour in support of his Matador debut Childish Prodigy. The tour will now extend through the beginning of November, and apparently will include the full lineup of Kurt Vile and The Violators.

We recently picked up KV & The Violators Hunchback EP, and we have to say, we dig on his full band sound just as much as his solo joints. It tends to be a bit more jammy, but also a bit more fleshed out. More importantly, it still holds on strong to Kurt's killer sense of melody and strong dedication to lo-fi goodness.

If you're digging it as much as we are, you'll definitely want to catch this tour. In SF that means a date at the awesomely-intimate Hemlock Tavern, and in New York it will be a killer night at Mercury Lounge. Oh, and we would be remiss not to give a shout out to the fact that KV will also be stopping in at good ol' Oberlin College. Let's just say we have some alumni on staff here, and big ups are in order.

We could not. be. more. excited.

See you there.
