Kurt Vile and Cate Le Bon originally planned on touring this spring, but their spring tour has been pushed into late summer due to Covid-19. The tour, initially set to begin on April 8 in Chicago, now kicks off on August 21 in Los Angeles at the stunning and historic Theatre at Ace Hotel in Downtown. The flyer boasts that Vile and Le Bon will perform both “together and solo” with Warpaint drummer Stella Mozgawa and Stephen Black, aka “Sweet Baboo,” who also performs in Cate Le Bon’s band.
Vile is known for his collaborative work with artists such as Courtney Barnett and Steve Gunn, his seven solo albums and for being the co-founder and former lead guitarist for the indie rock band The War on Drugs. He’s been known to blend genres like folk, country, psychedelia and indie rock, creating a retro feel to his sound. His latest album Bottle It In was released in 2018 and features contributions from Kim Gordon, Cass McCombs, Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint, and Mary Lattimore.
Welsh musician Cate Le Bon will join Vile on tour, coming off a stunning 2019 album release with Reward. Together, Vile and Le Bon should make for a performance and tour not to be missed!
