Published Jun 22, 2011Things are looking good for East Coast pop rock unit Hey Rosetta! The orchestral-loving crew recently scored a long list nomination for the Polaris Music Prize with their latest album, Seeds. Now, the group have announced more shows in support of the disc.
This summer, Hey Rosetta! will play a slew of shows all across Canada. This isn't so much a full-fledged tour as it is a steady smattering of festivals, opening dates and one-off appearances. It includes previously reported dates with the Tragically Hip and Broken Social Scene, plus a number of shows in Atlantic Canada.
All told, there are 18 shows, 15 of them in our country. See the schedule below, and brush up on Seeds by watching the video for the single "Yer Spring" at the bottom of the page.
