Mount Eerie announces September tour to warm your icy heart (or vice versa)

Mount Eerie announces September tour to warm your icy heart (or vice versa)

Not to deny the waxing appeal of the impending Goldrush, but one might’ve suspected that it takes more than a single festival to draw the inimitable Phil Elverum from his wilderness-surrounded haven in Anacortes, WA. Nothing new to report on the Mount Eerie full-length front, so one assumes that these upcoming tour dates are one (or some combination) of the following: 1) An unsurprising display of musical generosity. 2) A realization of his otherwise impulsive desire to travel. 3) The hometown fauna have literally spoken, coaxing Elverum to serve as human ambassador to their newly-established wildlife reservation… operated by the wildlife, who are super intelligent!

Venues off the beaten-path is the name of the game here, with “Sauna and Ice Plunge Tour” being the name of the tour. Maybe you should expect a degree of musical variation, and maybe you should expect a gravitational pull on animals whenever Mount Eerie holds out his arms. “Come to me, my little squirrel friends. If I looook….”
