G. Love & Special Sauce have added dates to their already extensive tour. The new dates bring them to the East Coast, including several stops in the Northeast. They’ll play New York City’s Bowery Ballroom on Wednesday, March 23.
G. Love & Special Sauce will tour the U.S. in support of their newest album, Love Saves the Day. The two-month-long tour takes them across the country with stops in every region. It kicks off in late January in Phoenix, Arizona and, aside from a two-week break in early March, continues through early April when it ends in Mobile, Alabama.
Love Saves the Day was released on Oct. 30. The album features guest appearances by Lucinda Williams, Los Lobos’ David Hidalgo, Citizen Cope and Ozomatli, among many others.
From G. Love & Special Sauce’s website:
Love Saves The Day features the down and dirty “trashcan blues” sound of G. Love and his long-term Special Sauce rhythm section – upright bassist James “Jimi Jazz” Prescott and drummer Jeffrey “The Houseman” Clemens. Engineer and producer Robert Carranza (Jack Johnson, Beastie Boys, Mars Volta) recorded the group live with few edits to capture the raw and unfiltered electricity of the tracks. “The music,” G. Love enthuses, “jumped off the tape.”
Tickets are currently on sale for the first half of their tour. Check their tour page for more info on the second half, including the Northeast dates.
