Calexico line up summer tour with festival dates and wrasslin’ galore

Calexico line up summer tour with festival dates and wrasslin' galore

Hey Calexico fans, wrassle up yer tie-dye and yer hacky sacks, because Joey Burns and John Convertino have more festival dates booked than you can shake one of those weird/gross sticks hippie dudes try to juggle at festivals at! Okay, okay, so really, the Tucson-based duo and friends have only a handful of festival dates, but what festival dates they are! These are some of the big ones: Bonnaroo and the New Orleans Jazz Fest, for example. And some lesser known gems, too: the Nelsonville, OH Nelsonville Fest, Ozark, AR’s Wakarusa Festival, and Tucson’s Festival En El Barrio.

All this in addition to a summer US tour in support of last year’s much lauded Algiers release on Anti-, which will take the band from deepest Indiana to wildest Montreal. The band’s latest release was born in a converted church in — appropriately enough — New Orleans’ Algiers neighborhood, birthplace of legendary jazz musicians, and home to many a warehouse where the city’s carnival krewes dream up and assemble their floats. So magic is in the air there. Trombones, too. Magic and trombones: coming soon to a city near you.
