Marco Benevento: West Coast Tour Starts Today


Sign in to view read count

Marco Benevento is wrapping 2011, as has become tradition, by visiting the West Coast for a nine date tour in December that starts tonight at UCSD's The Loft in San Diego. The pianist will have a new limited pressing 7-inch single available at these shows, as well.

Side A is a full on piano rock barn-burner called “Escape Horse" with none other than Mike Gordon on bass and Matt Chamberlain on drums (the first time these two have ever been on the same recording together as a rhythm section). Side B is a lilting tarantella-like number called “Fireworks."

Benevento's label The Royal Potato Family will be releasing the tracks later this month directly through its website, but for now the merch table at left coast shows is the only place where copies can be found.

After his own tour, Benevento joins Skerik, Mike Dillon and Stanton Moore in his other band Garage a Trois for a five show Colorado run. He then heads back to the East Coast to finish out the year with a headline post-Phish MSG show on Thursday, December 29 at The Highline Ballroom in New York City.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
