Monsters of Folk International Tour

Monsters of Folk, the collaborative group featuring My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis and singer/songwriter M. Ward, will hit the road this fall in support of its self-titled debut album. The four members will switch instruments and trade roles throughout each show, in an attempt to “maintain the freewheeling and highly collaborative spirit of their work together thus far.”

The tour will kick off at Vancouver, BC’s Orpheum on October 13 and make stops in Portland, OR (10/14), Seattle (10/15), Oakland (10/17), Los Angeles (10/18), San Diego (10/20), Phoenix, AZ (10/21), Santa Barbara, CA (10/22), Omaha, NE (10/28), Minneapolis, MN (10/29), Chicago (10/30), Louisville, KY (10/31), Toronto (11/2), Boston (11/3), New York (11/6, 8) and Philadelphia (11/9). The quartet will then head overseas for performances in Stockholm (11/12), Berlin (11/14), Copenhagen (11/15), London (11/17), Paris (11/18), Koln, DE (11/19), The Hague, NL (11/21) and Antwerp, BE (11/22).

Monsters of Folk will hit stores September 22. The band will be donating $1 from every ticket sold on the tour to local non-profits.
