A.A. Bondy refuses to leave road, plots winter tour

placeholder image

If you haven’t caught A.A. Bondy live by now, then you’re either a.) aloof as to who A.A. Bondy is or b.) just plain lazy. If you’re the former, shame on you. His latest record, this year’s When The Devil’s Loose, is a phenomenal walk in folk and southern melody. So, grab it immediately. But, if you’re the latter, it’s time to get up and witness Bondy in action. It’s not like he hasn’t made it easy for you, either. After all, the guy’s been touring non-stop since June, with appearances at several major music festivals, Bonnaroo included, and opening for the likes of Conor Oberst and Elvis Perkins.

Though he wrapped up his most recent tour, and final 2009 date, last week at New York’s Bowery Ballroom, Bondy plans to return in early 2010. Let’s just say his tour manager know his shit, too. With a few shows scattered in the high south and lower Midwest, Bondy will instead scoot over towards the west, where it’s nice and warm, before later heading back into the wintry slums. Nothing like enjoying some good ol’ sunshine when the majority of the nation is covered in god forsaken ice, right?

Make the proper accommodations and see him…
