Tired Pony: tired after two?
Supergroup Tired Pony is made up of Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol), Richard Colburn (Belle & Sebastian), former Snow Patrol songwriter Iain Archer, superstar producer Jacknife Lee, Peter Buck (R.E.M.), Scott McCaughey (Peter Buck, The Minus 5) and Snow Patrol touring member Troy Stewart. Now consider all that starpower on stage, plus whatever special guests decide to show up.
It's only a reality for New York and L.A., but count on more dates being added.
The album boasted contributions from Tom Smith (Editors) as well as She & Him (Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward); that latter pair has a slate of peachy headlining dates as well, with at least one featuring opener Dum Dum Girls.
Oct. 1 - New York - Irving Plaza (moved from Gramercy)
Oct. 4 - Los Angeles - El Rey Theatre
