Justin Townes Earle has a habit of doing things on his own terms. Last year, he broke with convention in leaving Nashville for Omaha, Nebraska to cut his latest LP, the acclaimed Kids in the Street. This spring, he's hitting the road for a fresh, 34-date tour, which he'll be conducting all on his own in a solo acoustic format.

Earle frequently performs by himself, but the news is a break in its own way given that Kids in the Street was one of his most fleshed-out records, one that thrived on its full-band arrangements. The Music City native will nonetheless be right at home, considering he'll be playing the sorts of theaters and small clubs where he's most comfortable.

He begins his trek at Pitchfork Social in Salt Spring Island, British Columbia on May 6th and wraps things up six weeks later at the Crocodile in Seattle, Washington. Those two gigs are only 100 miles away from each other, but in between Earle loops around the country, hitting cities like St. Paul, Minnesota, Brooklyn, New York, and Austin, Texas before returning to the west coast.
