The Arcs launch a summer tour with a show at the Orange Peel in Asheville, North Carolina, tonight. The tour, with special guests Mariachi Flor de Toloache, makes stops throughout the eastern United States, Midwest, and Canada, including festival sets (Forecastle, Newport, Wayhome, Osheaga, Lollapalooza, and more) and shows at The National in Richmond, CMAC in upstate New York (as special guests of Ray LaMontagne), St. Andrew's Hall in Detroit, among others, as well as an official Lollapalooza aftershow at Park West in Chicago. See below for all of the band's currently scheduled shows; for all the latest, 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 [Black] Keys—confessional, texturally enriched blues propelled with garage-rock force—and adds a riveting jump in eccentricity."
Their live show has been described by the New York Times as a "rock and soul revue that can knock out Motown beats, fuzz-toned boogies or slow-grooving R&B." 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."
