Dan Friel Announces West Coast Tour Dates With Chen Santa Maria

Dan Friel

We've given a lot of love to multi-instrumentalist Dan Friel recently, mostly as a very integral part of Parts and Labor, but we're also a huge fan of his solo work. So when we got the news that he's hitting the road in April to support his latest solo album Ghost Town, we wanted to make sure and share it with you.

Ghost Town is Friel's first full-length solo release for Night People Records, despite a handful of singles and tape compilations for labels like Night People's original incarnation Racoo-oo-oon, and it is garnished with the same experimental electronic pop magic we've come to expect (check out "Ghost Town (Part 1)" below). Dan will be supported on all the dates by Chen Santa Maria, an electronic improvisational duo made up of George Chen and Steven Santa Maria who put out their self-titled debut last year, released by avant-garde veteran Randy Lee Sutherland's GSSD label in collaboration with the new imprint Shit On Records.
