Shamir announces first North American tour

Shamir announces first North American tour

Look, I know Shamir’s been outside of Las Vegas before. I know this. He’s played shows in other cities before. He’s been to other cities in other contexts, too. But Shamir is going on his first full North American tour this September, and I would love for someone who has only seen Las Vegas to see the rest of North America’s cities, shocked to find that these other cities aren’t covered in neon.

Of course, I also know not all of Las Vegas is covered in neon either. We’re getting further and further from the truth here, huh? Let’s center this with some simple facts. Shamir’s touring schedule includes stops at Chicago’s Pitchfork Fest, Austin’s Fun Fun Fun Fest, Mexico City’s Corona Capital Festival, and Life Is Beautiful in his Vegas hometown. Recently, the songwriter — who released Ratchet earlier this year — was on Watch What Happens Live for Bravo and this video where he plays Jenga with Mac DeMarco for Complex. In October, he’ll support electro group Years & Years on their UK tour. These are facts. These are facts. These are true.
