Drawn in by the warm weather, relaxing beaches, and quick access to Cuban food and Disney World, everyone’s favorite prince, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, along with The Cairo Gang, have announced a massive world tour of Florida. The band will be doing a series of in-store appearances throughout the Florida area to promote their Drag City album together, The Wonder Show of the World, their newer Island Brothers Haiti benefit 10-inch, and mostly their newfound love of The Sunshine State.
Now, I may have lied and said that the band would only be appearing in FL. This is so close to being true. But the band will actually be kicking off their Florida Is Right For Me Tour by playing a show in Chicago, just to rub it in as many Midwestern faces as possible how much better the weather is in Florida.
