The Yard Dogs Road Show most recently left ROTHBURY and Glastonbury Festival audiences breathless. They’ve also begun work on their first full length DVD, which will include an in-depth documentation of their last ten years on the road – from inception to the present. Now, San Francisco’s hobo cabaret bring their living patchwork of vaudeville and rock and roll indoors for a headlining U.S. tour.
The run of shows launches on September 6 with a hometown show at San Francisco’s Fillmore Auditorium. Complete with red carnations for all of the ladies in attendance, Beats Antique opens the show, while Shellac Shack spins vintage 78s in the venue’s "Poster Room." After SF, the troupe heads east for a string of dates with support act The Indigo Belly Dance, featuring Rachel Brice, Mardi Love and Zoe Jake are all members of Miles Copeland’s internationally acclaimed Bellydance Superstars.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a fall tour for Yard Dogs Road Show without a stop in Denver, where on October 4 they return to the Mile High City – this time at the Bluebird Theatre – for the first time since last year’s epic Halloween bash with Devotchka.
