J*DaVeY & Blu Announce New World Culture Tour

March 3, 2011 10:06 am

Los Angeles-based New Wave Soul duo J*DaVeY, and Long Beach emcee, Blu, have teamed to bring the new genre-blending sound of the West Coast on the road with the New World Culture Tour. The 15-date trek will kick off in San Francisco at 330 Ritch on March 10th, and touch 7 West Coast markets – including Austin for a pair of performances at SXSW – and 7 East Coast markets before wrapping up in Seattle at Nectar Lounge on April 14th.

The announcement comes on the heels of both artists’ reemergence to the forefront of independent music scene, after a somewhat extended hiatus. J*DaVeY recently released their Evil Christian Cop EP, to rave reviews, as a warm-up to their long-anticipated sophomore album, New Designer Drug, slated for 2nd Quarter. Blu is gearing up for his own new release, NoYork! (Warner Bros.) which features production from Flying Lotus, Exile, Madlib, and Shafiq Husayn (Sa-Ra), and will hit stores this Summer.
