Mike Keneally & Aristocrats Tour Dates 4-Evah

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

I’m happy to report that, after a few weeks in the Touring Decompression Chamber, I’m rested and ready (if not tan) and wanted to share with you the following news about a whole pile of upcoming shows…starting with my dear friend Mike Keneally coming right up in December!

The Mike Keneally Band
California Tourette 2013
(Mike Keneally/vox + gtr, Rick Musallam/gtr, Bryan Beller/bass, Joe Travers/drums –

12/7 – San Diego, CA – The Loft @ UCSD
12/12 – San Francisco, CA – Biscuits & Blues
12/13 – Arcata, CA – The Jambalaya

We’ll be doing new tunes from Keneally’s latest opus “You Must Be This Tall“, as well as chestnuts from his recently re-released classic album “Sluggo!“. It’s not easy to get the four of us together, so, you know…don’t miss it.

Then, after everyone gets their holidays on, Aristocrats touring mania starts right up in January, including some brand new western cities for us. And Mexico!

Crazy, right? There’s actually *more* that I can’t announce yet, but suffice it to say I’ll be on the road for most of 2014. So I hope I see you out there somewhere!

And finally, if you’re still reading – thanks to everyone who checked out my first solo album “View” for the first time during the whole 10th Anniversary Month thing (that thing being: it’s been streaming for free at SoundCloud all month, and you get a signed copy of “View” plus a free “Wednesday Night Live” CD if you buy it from my webstore). It’s nice to know that record’s still being appreciated, especially now. In fact, I’ve decided to leave the special up through the Black Friday weekend, because Capitalism. :-) But after Sunday, it’s coming down.

That’s it for now. Don’t eat too much turkey, OK?

Best wishes to all,
Bryan Beller
