Kristin Hersh To Tour With Throwing Muses, Solo, With 50FootWave

Throwing Muses has announced three US concert dates in August. They'll play a night each in Cambridge, MA, and New York City on the (presumably chilly) heels of their previously announced set at the Innipukinn Festival in Reykjavik, Iceland. A third concert has been added, for Los Angeles on August, 19th, with no venue yet announced.

Hersh and Bernard Georges will open for themselves (and we probably don't all know how painful that can be) at all three dates, since their "other" band 50FootWave is opening for Throwing Muses. 50FootWave will also be playing at a couple of free festivals, and Hersh is playing three solo dates in July. Whew.

Any rumors that she plans on touring under an assumed name as a hip-hop artist during this same time period are strictly rumors at this point, albeit intriguing ones.

Saturday, August 5th - Reykjavik, Iceland - Innipukinn Festival

Friday, August 11th - Cambridge, MA - The Middle East (tickets available directly through the venue, $20, 18+)
