Check out that headline I slyly crafted: classic clickbait. See, I’ve made you click the link by implying this could be your first chance to see Angel Olsen perform live since 2014. And that’s not entirely true: this could be your first chance to see Angel Olsen perform ***alone*** on stage — without the support of a full backing band — since 2014. That is, if you go to one of her “Tiny Dreams” tour dates in North America this Summer.

Why go back to dragging her butt across the bigger part of this big-ass continent of ours all on her own, after all these years, you ask? Well, last year, Olsen released a collection of early unreleased tracks, B-sides, and demos called Phases and will be highlighting all those songs on her upcoming tour. You might even hear a completely new one (or two)! And plus, Olsen won’t be alone after all: she’s taking Julianna Barwick, Hand Habits’ Meg Duffy, and Dick Stusso on the road with her to support.

The singer/songwriter has also partnered with PLUS1, declaring that $1 from every ticket sold (except in Vancouver and North Adams) will go to Direct Relief, a humanitarian aid organization that works “to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty and emergencies.” Just another great reason to not sleep on these shows! — AND not to hate me for clickbaiting you like that.
