Broken Social Scene axe man and amazingly talented singer/songwriter/solo artist Jason Collett has just announced a series of US dates with (fellow) Canadian superstar Sam Roberts. The quick trek will kick off on November 18 in Minneapolis and stretch through November 30 at TT The Bears in Cambridge, MA. Before the tour gets rolling however, the Canadian duo will play a show in their native land opening for none other than Bush-bashing Southerners The Dixie Chicks.
Collett will be supporting one of my favorite albums of the year, his Idols Of Exile LP, throughout the tour. Details below.
