Published Sep 07, 2011In the past year or so, Winnipeg pop rockers Imaginary Cities have scored sweet opening gigs for artists like Ra Ra Riot, the Rural Alberta Advantage, the Weakerthans and the Besnard Lakes. Now, the group are getting ready to hit the road in North America in support of the Pixies and the Sea and Cake, plus embark upon some Canadian headlining gigs of their own.
Running from November until early December, this trek will take the band across Canada and down south of the border. There is a single opening slot for the Sea and Cake, plus six U.S. gigs with the Pixies (who Imaginary Cities toured with in the spring). There are also 11 Canadian shows.
