Published Feb 23, 2012With Tim Fite due to release his latest album, Ain't Ain't Ain't, on March 6 via Anti-Records, the eclectic Brooklyn songwriter is getting ready to support it with a North American tour.
The outing includes a number of U.S. dates, all in the eastern half of the country, plus a single Canadian gig at Toronto's Drake Hotel on April 1. See the schedule below.
The trek will see Fite touring solo with a multimedia stage show that brings together music with illustration, video, and what a press release promises is "light carpentry."
He explained in a statement, "I would love to have a real band for my stage show, but bandmates eat a lot of food, trash hotel rooms, and get people pregnant. So in the interest of caution, I have opted for the safety of technological solitude. In the glow of the projector and the laptop, 'the band' becomes both infinite and non-existent, and the audience finds themselves not at a rock show, but rather, in one."
Go here to listen to the quirky folk cut "Joyriding," which appears on Ain't Ain't Ain't.
