Jack Peñate announces October tour dates

I really admire Jack Peñate – he’s taken his former, quite chart-friendly, gaggle’o’girls-style, pocketed the fun, interesting elements, and thrown all the ordinary, predictable stuff out of window in favour of a gloomier outlook.  It might mean no more Capital FM (no idea if he’s on this or not) or scaling giddy heights in the charts, but it definitely ensures he’s making good music.  Songs like Tonight’s Today are quite zany and offbeat, with strange structures and echoey, aloof vocals, and without easy-satisfaction choruses.  You have to listen harder and more repeatedly to fall for these tunes, and that makes it much more worthwhile when you do.

All of which makes it good news that Jack’s announced a 1o-date UK tour in October.  The deets are thus:

Sat 17 October – DUBLIN Village
Sun 18 October – BELFAST Spring & Airbrake
Tues 20 October – GLASGOW Arches
Thurs 22 October – BIRMINGHAM Rainbow Warehouse
Fri 23 October – MANCHESTER Warehouse Project
Sat 24 October – LEEDS Met Uni
Sun 25 October – NOTTINGHAM Trent Uni
Tues 27 October – BRISTOL Anson Rooms
Thurs 29 October – LONDON The Fridge
Fri 30 October – SOUTHAMPTON Uni

Pre-sale tickets are available right now from here. Tickets then go on general sale at 10am tomorrow (Tuesday 28 July) from See Tickets.

Looking at that list and the few that I know, it seems that while Jack’s not packing out the foremost venues, he’s still playing some pretty big auditoriums.  Fingers crossed the tour’s a success.  Personally, I’m sure looking forward to seeing Jack play at Bestival.
