Thursday, May 24th
Pedro the Lion



Last spring, after 11 years of performing and recording under his own name, Dave Bazan’s growing fatigue with working alone hit a tipping point. “I missed the energy of making music with other people on stage and constantly traveling alone was starting to really sting”, Bazan recalls. “I needed to be in a band again”.

Bazan is very excited to be back playing rock & roll as Pedro the Lion again. The set list for a full US tour in 2018 will span every Pedro the Lion record and then some.
