Rocky Votolato West Coast Tour

Seattle son, and a PopWreck(oning) favorite, Rocky Votolato is heading out on a West Coast solo acoustic tour, headlining some dates and playing with Owen others (dates below). Having grown weary of playing songs from his latest release The Brag and Cuss, Votolato will use the summer tour as a retrospective on earlier albums, with a heavy focus on Makers and Suicide Medicine, with perhaps an occasional Waxwing (former band with brother Cody Votolato, now playing with The Blood Brothers) song thrown in for good measure. He’ll also be testing out some new material for a record he’s currently writing to “see how they feel live.”

If you’re lucky enough to live or be on the west coast for any of these shows, go see Rocky live. He’s breathtaking. We are severely jealous of the West Coast and wish that Rocky would head east with a tour focused on Suicide Medicine and Makers (our favorite Votolato records, respectively).
