Mango Starr’s Tour Roundup: Deerhunter (again), Fruit Bats/Sera Cahoone, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Passion Pit

- In my most recent (and first) tour roundup post, I mentioned how Deerhunter canceled their European tour. Remember? Well, turns out they've already rescheduled part of the tour (which now starts in May with their ATP appearance) and they expect to confirm even more dates next week! Check out the rescheduled dates here, and then stick 'em up, motherfucker!

- Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings are at it again, starting a short U.S. tour today that will continue throughout January (opening act: Bulgarian/Balkan folk group Ivan Milev Band), with scattered dates afterward, including two Valentine's Day performances in New York at the Nokia Live Theatre in February and at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in April. That was just one sentence, FYI.

- Fruit Bats and Sera Cahoone are starting a tour together on January 27 in Eugene, OR. In order to fuck up the whole synchronization of it all, Cahoone will play a show at the Red Room one day earlier. Not sure what Fruit Bats' thoughts are on this, but I'd personally call off the tour. Dates can be found here.

- Passion Pit start their tour next Monday, January 26, at Pontiac, MI's Crofoot and end in Northampton, MA's Iron Horse Music Hall. They'll be playing with Cale Parks and Paper Route for most, if not all, the North American dates (I'm too lazy to check it up myself). Afterward, the band will head to Europe, with a break in March before playing more shows in April. Meanwhile, the band is preparing a 2009 full-length, and if you're reading this, I bet you're really excited!
