Here we go.
Launching dance floors into the stratosphere with an entirely new live show, Chico Mann is set to hit the road for a string of dates across North America beginning April 16 with a very special Record Store Day party in Brooklyn presented by Fat Beats and Wax Poetics.
After a late night at the W Hotel in DC on April 23rd, Chico will do a couple firsts in Chicago and Vancouver on April 27th and 29th, respectively, the latter with good friend Toy Selectah who will also join Chico at The Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco on April 30th.
Highlighting the West Coast leg of the tour is a Cinco de Mayo celebration at La Cita in Los Angeles with good friends Toy Selectah and Mexicans with Guns (this one is going to get really hot fam!). LA will get another helping of Chico at Fiesta Broadway on Sunday May 8th.
Bringing the bass home to Miami, Chico will hit Bardot on Friday May 13th before heading across the panhandle for WMNF's Tropical Heatwave in Tampa on Saturday the 14th.
And settling into some Texas love for the last couple days of the tour Chico will play outdoors at Pearl in San Antonio for the Echale Latino Music Estyles series on Friday May 20th before burning it down in Austin for the 2011 Pachanga Festival on Saturday May 21st.
Full tour dates below and stay tuned for the possibility of more dates being added soon.
And for a lil taste of what you're going to get on this tour check out Chico on a brand new episode of Live at the Loft.
See you in the Chicosphere!!!
