Striking Silver Out West
Life on the road must be better than David Berman expected, because the Silver Jews have expanded their tour plans to include a round of European gigs and fall dates along the West Coast.
The band embarked on its first-ever tour this spring, hitting venues throughout the East Coast and South. Berman and friends will play clubs in Spain, France, and the U.K. this June and July, in addition to festivals in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Italy.
After a pair of late-July shows in the Midwest, the band will return to the U.K. for the Greenman Festival in August and then launch a West Coast leg in September. Four shows are confirmed, in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Drag City Records released the fifth Silver Jews album, Tanglewood Numbers, last October.
