Tour Update!

Well, we’re smack into July, and the summer touring swing is at full throttle for a vast majority of the music community.

Oh sure, there are all kinds of expensive, three day, sun-blasted juggernaut music festivals out there to drop a paycheck (or four) on, but don’t forget about the shows dropping by the local music venue in your town.

They cost much less, feature a far more intimate atmosphere, and have better drink prices, for one. Also, there is usually a solid opportunity to meet the band before or after the show, as a lot of these local venues don’t have green rooms for the musicians to hide in.

With that in mind, here are a few BTR favorites currently on (or about to be on) the touring circuit, in what’s shaping up to be one beast of a summer for live music.

Tilly and the Wall & The Ruby Suns

What a whale of a double-barreled show! On one hand, you get to see Ryan McPhun play like a billion instruments by himself, and after that, you get to see the members of Tilly and the Wall line up and utilize tap dancing shoes for percussion. So, yeah,  this is definitely one of the more visually appealing shows to catch this summer. Tilly and the Wall are celebrating the release of their new record, O, and The Ruby Suns are still jacked up on Sea Lion, which came out in March.
