Joe Henry news & notes for week ending June 21

jhenry_pic4_lgIt’s another big week for Joe Henry fans, as JH kicks off his brief U.S. tour on Friday at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall.  I’ll be in LA for the Saturday show at Largo (tickets still remain for both sets!).  A few other notes from the past couple of weeks…

  • Many kudos to Stefan for his coverage of the European tour and press stops.  He has even translated several interviews over the course of the tour.  A few great finds from his blog:
  • Here’s a nice preview article by Kimerly Chun in the San Francisco Chronicle.
  • Washington City Paper is giving away tickets to Tuesday’s show at The Birchmere (which will also feature Sara Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion).
  • A very thoughtful review by Walter Tunis in the Lexington Herald-Leader.

I imagine we’ll see a bit more stateside press as the tour kicks off.  If any readers are attending the show in LA, by all means drop me a line and say hi while you’re there.
