Award-winning New Orleans guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Anders Osborne, touring in support of his powerful new Alligator Records CD, Black Eye Galaxy, will co-headline the HeadCount Participation Tour, along with Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk. The tour will stop in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, and New York City on November 2, 3, 4 and 5 respectively.

The HeadCount Participation Tour is part of a year-long celebration of the collaboration between Magic Hat Brewing Company and national voter registration organization, HeadCount. The main mission is to get people talking about their political passions and, most importantly, to register to vote in this fall's presidential election

Black Eye Galaxy is a harrowing but ultimately uplifting cycle of richly detailed songs that are musically and lyrically thought-provoking, exhilarating and completely engaging. Between the sheer force and potent lyricism of his guitar playing, the riveting depth of his songwriting and the straight-from-the-soul conviction of his vocals, Osborne is among the most original and visionary musicians writing and performing today. OffBeat magazine named Osborne the Crescent City's Best Guitarist in 2010 and 2011, and also named him the Best Roots Rock Artist of 2011. Concert information is as follows:

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
