Streetlight Manifesto @ Spokane Knitting Factory (Preview)

Pentimento Music Company bands Streetlight ManifestoLionize, and Rodeo Ruby Love have announced they will embark on the Winter Tour 2011 together with Reel Big Fish.  The tour, which kicks off November 21 in Lancaster, PA, sees the bands winding throughout small markets across the country for four weeks, and is a continuation of the successful Streetlight Manifesto/Reel Big Fish summer tour.  Lionize and Rodeo Ruby Love will be documenting the tour on the site AbsolutePunk.net, with photos, videos, and insightful updates for all the world to see.
Streetlight Manifesto has spent much of 2011 touring the country in support of their previous releases.  Frontman Tomas Kalnoky is set to release the album Streetlight Lullabies on November 22, 2011 under the name Toh Kay, which features 10 Streetlight Manifest songs stripped-down to their acoustic bones.  The band is currently working on their next album, tentatively scheduled for a late spring 2012 release.  Streetlight Manifesto has paired with the charity Alex’s Lemonade Stand for their Goodwill Guestlist Project this tour.  The band sells 4 guestlist spots at each of their shows to create the Goodwill Guestlist, with all the money from these sales going to a charity; last tour’s recipient was Project Night Night. These tickets are available for purchase via email at streetlightinfo@riscmail.com
Lionize, fresh off the road from a fall tour with friends Larry and His Flask that was sadly forced to end abruptly, bring a sound to the tour which defies classification.  Influenced by reggae, 70s rock, and punk, these road warriors spent the past summer on the Vans Warped Tour and are on the verge of releasing a new album.  Expect much exciting news to come from this band in the next few months.
Rodeo Ruby Love plays rowdy, feel-good, toe-tapping music.  This Is Why We Don’t Have Nice Things, their debut release on Pentimento was re-released late this fall, and the band is ready to tackle the road in support of it.  But just in case you think that musical talent is the only thing this band has going… Ben Claghorn, the band’s bassist, recently had a hilarious web short of his featured on Comedy Central’s Tosh.0 which you can view here.
