Woo, boy! Summer is finally here and what a time to be alive, in the midst of a streaming roll out for the ages. See, since April, each week has brought another year from the Palace-Oldham-Bonny universe to streaming life chronologically, allowing worldwide streaming audiences the chance to join the BPB congregation en masse. It's a common theme around these Drag City parts ---ye old "Prince" giving and giving, happily bestowing upon your feeble, non-physical-buying, formless being. Just next weekend, he's taking the solo show route for the first time, in, well, a long time! But Bonny's boundless gifts don't end there; beginning in the deep dog days of Summer the Prince and his ensemble--the Wandering All-Stars & Motor Royalty--are headed on the road again. Bonnie will be passing through the Southeast for a pair of public lectures at Duke University (oh, to be a fly on that wall!) as well as a special Bonnie performance before heading off on a proper tour with stops in the Midwest and Northeast. Early October will also see the release of Songs of Love and Horror, the definitive collection of Will Oldham's lyrics---spanning three decades of songwriting with annotations that impart new meaning to his music. Copies of the book will be available at every show, this musical and literary combination is not to be missed. It's been years since you've had the option to see Bonnie 'Prince' Billy RAW: live, uncensored and in intimate settings, so hop to it!

Give and let live! Tickets are on sale tomorrow, get 'em while they're fresh.
