Aaron & Mike Weiss of mewithoutYou announce August tour dates with Damien Jurado and Psalters

Weiss Family & Friends
Aaron & Mike Weiss of mewithoutYou announce August tour dates with Damien Jurado and Psalters
Fans of mewithoutYou will get to see another side of the Philly experimental band this fall when the Weiss Family hits the road this August for a tour with Damien Jurado and Psalters. MewithoutYou just completed a sold-out US tour and will be taking to the road with an intimate version of the group, offering audiences an alternate take on their classic songs. Look for a few surprises, friends and additional instrumentalists as well.

Joining brothers Aaron on acoustic guitar and Mike Weiss on electric guitar will be Mike's wife Sarah on keyboards, along with Matt Chapin on trumpet. This is most definitely not an “unplugged” outing; however, the percussion section will be far from the driving rock drums mewithoutYou fans are used to. It is a chance to hear mewithoutYou songs interpreted in a new way as the Weiss Family puts a new twist on their impressive body of work. They’ll also be mixing it up with an eclectic selection of covers, but you’ll have to check out one of these shows to find out what they’ll be!

Joining on this tour of family and friends with be songwriter Damien Jurado and gypsy tribal activist band Psalters.
