(July 27), FedEx Forum in Memphis (Aug. 14) and Fiddler's Green in Denver (Aug. 23).

 

Transcended Youth: Folk heros the Mountain Goats will head out on the Tuttlingen Warriors tour (the name is apparently an inside joke).

Booked by Adam Voith of Billions Corp., the tour will touch down at Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C. (May 1) before hitting Maxwell's in Hoboken, N.J.

(April 28, Mohawk in Austin (May 9), the Stone Fox in Nashville (May 13) and Black Cat in Washington, D.C. (May 19).
