Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 16, 2008
SPRING BREAK! Sun, sand, ocean breezes . . . and MUSIC. Brooklyn genre-deconstructionists, the Benevento/Russo Duo and sizzling hot rockers, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals will hit the road together for a 10-show tour that takes the two acts down the eastern seaboard and into Langerado Music Festival in South Florida before heading back up through the heartland.
After limited touring in 2007, the Benevento/Russo Duo are poised to make a big splash in 2008. The band has been holed up in Brooklyn's Trout Recording Studio with Bryce Goggin (Pavement, Luna) preparing for a different sort of follow-up to 2006's critically-acclaimed release, "Play Pause Stop." The band will begin a monthly digital series in March in conjunction with the tour, releasing 2-3 songs per month through their website and other digital outlets.
Grace Potter & the Nocturnals continue to astound audiences from coast to coast while touring in support of their chart-topping 2007 release "This is Somewhere." Currently finishing up a round of dates that finds the band headlining Lincoln Center as well as the 9:30 Club, the band has been able to blow away crowds on a nightly basis.
Expect an exciting blend every night of this tour, as the bands will range from gut-bucket blues and soul to experimental post-rock leanings at the drop of a hat.
