Vetiver takes <i>Thing of the Past</i> on the road, joins up with Phosphorescent

Vetiver's excellent covers album Thing of The Past may only be one day old, but the crack quintet is already busy defying stereotypes about spacey Bay Area hippies by diving into an extensive, summer-long tour that will take them both across the pond and across the Channel. Leader Andy Cabic will be backed by the four core members that played on 2006's To Find Me Gone, and will be kicking off the tour tomorrow night at San Diego's Casbah. Feeling waffly? Just scroll down to the bottom of the post for Vetiver's laid-back read on Michael Hurley's "Blue Driver" and a 10-song mix prepared by Cabic for When You Awake.


The band will be joining up with Phosphorescent (a/k/a "boot-gaze" master and Bed-Stuy resident Matthew Houck) for shows at the Bowery Ballroom and the Music Hall of Williamsburg in early August. Dates for both artists' tours below.
