Streetlight Manifesto Announce October East Coast Tour

 

Early this morning, Streetlight Manifesto announced the second leg of their Last Good Fight tour, which will reach across the East Coast of the United States and into Canada. A Boston date has been set for Tuesday, October 20th at the House of Blues, and tickets can be purchased this Friday (6/5) at 10am via Livenation. Opening for Streetlight on all dates will be the always reliable Dan Potthast and folk act Sycamore Smith, who have both toured and collaborated with Streetlight’s writer/guitarist/vocalist Thomas Kalnoky’s solo side project Toh Kay. These Eastern dates will be in response to the tour’s West Coast leg, which ended earlier this week. This will be the third October in a row that Streetlight has played at Boston’s House of Blues, with last year’s date being one of the just six shows the band played that year. Check Streetlight’s website and Facebook page for more info.

This is the third announced tour since Streetlight announced they would stop touring in order to focus on writing and recording new material, which surely unearths some skepticism about how well those plans are working out. However, it could be (and probably is) the case that the band is using these dates to test out new material, or even raise funds for further recording. Below, check out the full tour dates, as well as the tour announcement poster designed by Jakub Rebelka and both volumes of “You by Me”, a series of EPs in which Toh Kay covers (and is covered by) tour openers Dan Potthast and Sycamore Smith.
