Tom Brosseau Tours East Behind Posthumous Success

Tom Brosseau has released a really fantastic record in Posthumous Success (Fat Cat). It's different from most Brosseau releases in that it features a larger band, and even some instrumentals. While we still prefer the softer more lonesome solo work (when the songs are there) these more produced pieces sound fairly excellent. Luckily, for our tastes at least, Brosseau has announced a solo east coast tour, traveling by train no less! Hey man, it's green, and probably comparable to gas prices. Brosseau will kick off his tour with one West Coast date at the Troubadour in LA with Elvis Perkins and Other Lives. Check out this cool super 8 video for Tom Brosseau's "You Don't Know My Friends" above shot by Seth Kotok and directed by Jamie Seborer. Tour dates after the jump.
