Andy Frasco and The U.N. have announced their 2021 US tour dates, taking their live act across the country this fall. To open each night, Andy is featuring the World Saving Local Talent Search – a variety show searching for each city’s most talented Frasco fans, hosted by Nick Gerlach.
Andy Frasco & The U.N. have released a series of acclaimed records, share bills with the likes of Leon Russell, Galactic, Gary Clark, Jr., The Revivalists, and Marcus King among others, and slay festival stages everywhere from Mountain Jam in the U.S. to Rock am Ring in Germany and COTAI Jazz & Blues in China.
Frasco began writing poetry that eventually became songs. He wrote about despair and anxiety, about friendship and growth, about accountability and potential, transforming the poems into defiant rock and roll anthems. These songs became his most recent album ‘Keep On Keeping On’ released at the beginning of the pandemic in April of 2020.
Like many, the pandemic hit Andy hard. He was once again feeling that ‘breaking point’ and he quickly transformed his high energy road show into a year long digital blitz of new music, a 33 episode variety show (Andy Frasco – “World Saving Sh*tshow”) which garnered 20 millions views, a digital Dance Party and Andy further developed his Andy Frasco’s World Saving Podcast. His variety show and podcast included interviews and musical performances by many notable guests such as Tony Hawk, Kurt Vile, Nathaniel Rateliff, Kamasi Washington, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong and more.
Additionally, Frasco recently scored ‘The Great Depresh,’ an HBO documentary about Gary Gulman exploring the comic’s struggles with depression that was produced by Judd Apatow and directed by Mike Bonfiglio). This summer, Frasco will perform at multiple summer festivals including Summer Camp, FloydFest and hopefully many more to be announced.
