Baio Takes 'The Names' on Tour

Baio Takes 'The Names' on Tour
Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio's journey as the dance-dabblin' Baio continues through to the new year, with the solo artist having just unveiled tour dates behind his recent debut LP, The Names.

Though Baio had been promoting the album even ahead of its September release through Glassnote, the record will be getting a big push come February. It was announced today (November 17) that a global trip begins out on the U.S. West Coast, but quickly scoots up to Vancouver for a show at the Biltmore Cabaret on February 5. From there, he'll head back east and hit up Montreal before travelling to Europe.

You'll find all of the North American show details below, as well as in the graphic above. 

Additionally, Baio recently offered up his The Names [Expansion Pack] remix collection. Available now as a digital release, it features seven reworked cuts from the album, as interpreted by the likes of DJ Tennis, Wolfram, Sondrio, Moonlight Matters and more.

You'll find a stream of Cranks' thump-heavy run-through of The Names "Sister of Pearl" down below.
