Dawson slates headlining tour
Monday, August 20, 2018
– Devin Dawson will return to the road for his first headlining tour this fall, he announced today.
Starting Nov. 1 in Columbia, S.C., the Stray Off Course tour will feature yet-to-be-announced special guests and continue through the middle of December .
Dawson recently released the official music video for "Asking For A Friend," the second single from his "Dark Horse" debut disc. The song describes a character longing to repair a damaged relationship, but lacking the courage to ask for forgiveness. Using a heavily stylized, noir set and camera trickery, the video is set in a surreal "bar" where each representation of a "friend" is played by Dawson himself.
Tour dates are:
Nov. 1 Columbia, SC
Nov. 2 Savannah, GA
Nov. 3 Rome, GA
Nov. 9 Detroit, MI
Nov. 10 Buffalo, NY
Dec. 7 Arlington, TX
Dec. 8 Baton Rouge, LA
Dec. 15 Pocolo, OK

In a well-delivered 85-minute set, Platt and The Honeycutters turned that ancient... »»»
Concert Review: Lake Street Dive ends the year in style
Lake Street Dive may have been looking back when it offered that traditional New Year's song "Auld Lang Syne" as the new year rolled in. No matter which way the band looks - forwards or backwards - life is good.
