Lambchop Announces Expanded Tour Including Rare California Dates in June–Shares Prince Cover

Jan 25th, 2017 in Music

That we have been able to find, Lefort-faves Lambchop have only performed live in California a mere dozen times in their entire 23-year history, and a scant four (4!) times in Los Angeles). Thankfully those numbers are about to be augmented. Lambchop announced today that they have added to their tour one show in San Francisco (at their beloved Great American Music Hall on June 2nd) and one in Los Angeles (at the beloved Bootleg Theater on June 3rd). The band is out on tour in support of their fantastically-re-imagined, quantum-soundshift, and still-moving album, FLOTUS. Bandleader Kurt Wagner has said that the beguiling new sound-scape was designed, at least in part, to get the attention and ear of his wife.

To get a feel for the band’s newfound sound (Wagner’s deftly manipulated vocals, etc.) on FLOTUS, check out below their sweet cover of Prince’s seminal When You Were Mine (off Dirty Minds). The band has been performing the cover out on tour and we hope to hear it in June.

Do yourselves a favor and pick up FLOTUS now HERE. And at bottom check out and get tickets for the band’s upcoming tour dates.
