Willis Earl Beal

SBTRKT, who was last in town to play Bottom Lounge, just announced a North American leg of his massive international tour which he is currently on. That tour brings him to Chicago on April 7 at House of Blues with support from Chicago's Willis Earl Beal. Tickets are not on sale yet but check livenation for updates. All dates, including SXSW, are listed below.

Speaking of Willis Earl Beal, he just played Schuba's during Tomorrow Never Knows (1/14) with Wild Belle, Polica, Class Actress and Chairlift. A couple of pictures of his set from that show are in this post. He also recently signed to XL's new Hot Charity imprint, and will release his debut LP, Acousmatic Sorcery, on March 20 for the label. Check out an up close and personal sounding lead track from that album, "Evening's Kiss," below.
