Baio Tops The Ticket

Known simply as Baio, Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio has lined up a headlining tour beginning in early February.  Coming up a bit sooner are December shows in Mexico as well as a Los Angeles gig opening for Chvrches.

Baio recently worked with tastemakers such as DJ Tennis, Sondrio, Samuel Proffitt and Baile to released remixes from his debut album, The Names, released in September on Glassnote Record.  Called The Names Expansion Pack, the remixes are available at all major digital retailors.


Baio’s touring calendar shows him playing Miami’s Citadel for “A Very Superfine! Kickoff” Dec. 2.  Then it’s off to Mexico for gigs in Monterrey, Acapulco and Mexico City before going to Los Angeles to be a part of the Dec. 14 kick off of Alt 98.7’s first-ever concert series “ALTimate December To Remember.”

Following his headlining journey featuring shows in the U.S. and Canada, Baio goes on a February-March Euro adventure that will take him to Berlin, Zurich, London, Rotterdam and other cities you’d love to visit.
