Canadian six-piece indie rock band Hey Rosetta! are playing some shows this October with Australia's The Jezabels and fellow Canadians Yukon Blonde. I believe many of these bands that are touring in America are primarily here for CMJ. You get the same effect earlier in the year when SXSW occurs. Anyway, the band's final date on their brief tour is in Minneapolis.
The band's latest album, Seeds, was released earlier in May via ATO Records.
Upcoming Tour Dates:
10/18 - Middle East - Cambridge, MA *
10/19 - Rock and Roll Hotel - Washington, DC *
10/20 - Union Transfer - Philadelphia, PA *
10/23 - Lincoln Hall - Chicago, IL
10/24 - The Frequency - Madison, WI
10/25 - 7th Street Entry - Minneapolis, MN
* w/ The Jezabels and Yukon Blonde
One of the most anticipated bands out there is Denver folk-rockers, The Lumineers. The band just got word that they'll be touring the states in support of Dave Matthews Band, kind of big deal? Can you say massive crowds?!?
The Lumineers haven't needed to steal anyone else's fan base and have been rising to the top on their own. These guys are selling out every show in the states except for Mississippi (which doesn't count.)
The Lumineers also had success with their hit song that landed on the latest BING commercial with "Ho Hey". I can't wait to see these guys in The Big Easy tomorrow night!

Jemez Mountain Hawkz is an indiepop/Americana band, consisting of previous band members from Scared of Chaka, Shins, Little Cuts, and Chasers. Hey-Mez is the band's debut EP, released earlier this month.
The five-song EP is said to be "spacious and elegant" with its love of Summertime in the California and New Mexico landscape.
You can hear it for yourself at Soundcloud.
