The Barr Brothers are currently on tour in the Northeast, as well as making their second guest appearance on the David Letterman Show. They had to cancel a show in Philadelphia on Nov. 20 in order to play Letterman due to a last-minute invitation, but the band was able to play to a much larger crowd at the Bowery Ballroom, last Friday, Nov.21, and at The Sinclair in Cambridge, MA last Saturday, Nov. 22. They will play Canada next on Dec. 5 (Vancouver, BC), Dec. 7 in Oregon, then Dec. 10 – 12 in San Francisco, Santa Cruz and Los Angeles and then back to NYC at the Highline on January 8, before shipping off to Europe for a UK tour Jan. 24-30 [tour info]. The Barr Brothers have also recently added Mishka Stein on bass, from Montreal to their line-up.
Here is the official video from the Late Show with David Letterman – “Even the Darkness Has Arms” ] Letterman jokingly asked Brad, “You still live in Montreal?” Brad replied, “yes” Dave then said, “Paul and I will come up…we would like to manage the band. … I don’t know what arrangements you have now, but we’ll kill that, Paul and I will take over” Paul jokingly stated, “…and Joy Philbin will also co-manage”.
