    The Arcs Launch North American Spring Tour

    The Arcs—Dan Auerbach, Leon Michels, Richard Swift, Homer Steinweiss, and Nick Movshon—along with special guests Mariachi Flor de Toloache, kick off their North American spring tour at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver tonight. The "West Coast Caravan" leg of the tour, where you can pick up the t-shirt pictured above, also includes stops in Seattle and Portland and sold-out shows in San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, and Pomona, plus two appearances at the Coachella festival. The band then heads eastward for shows in Denver, St. Louis, Austin, New Orleans, and more, making a final stop at the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis on May 1.

    The band is also slated to perform at several North American festivals this summer, including Forecastle, Wayhome, Lollapalooza, Osheaga, and their just-announced addition to the Newport Folk Festival line-up, plus newly announced shows in Asheville, Richmond, and Detroit. See below for all of the currently scheduled shows, or visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    The Arcs released their debut album, Yours, Dreamily, last year on Nonesuch to critical acclaim, with Rolling Stone saying it “takes what Auerbach does at his best, in and out of the Keys—confessional, texturally enriched blues propelled with garage-rock force—and adds a riveting jump in eccentricity.”

    Their live show has received no less praise, with the New York Times describing it as a “rock and soul revue that can knock out Motown beats, fuzz-toned boogies or slow-grooving R&B,” adding that they “revved up rockabilly and Bo Diddley beats, and Mr. Auerbach’s voice was perched, not at all precariously, between desperation and defiance.” The Washington Post says, “When the Arcs take the stage, expect a party among friends that takes its form in expansive solos, singalong choruses and general merriment.”
