Kaki King will return to her acoustic roots this winter for a national tour that will make stops at renowned venues such as the Moma in New York City, Yoshi's in San Francisco, and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia. King's career has been enthralling, as it has evolved from its virtuosic acoustic busker beginnings in the subways of New York to creating cerebral soundscapes with Tortoise's John McIntyre to being included on Rolling Stone magazine's short list of "Guitar Gods" to collaborations with Dave Grohl and Eddie Vedder. In her 10-year career, King has released five full lengths and two EPs. She has scored for television and film, most notably alongside Vedder and Michael Brook as composers for Sean Penn's Into the Wild for which she received a Best Original Score Golden Globe nomination. King also contributed to the Grammy-nominated August Rush soundtrack, and in 2009, Ovation launched their Kaki King signature guitar model, which is now for sale worldwide.King's latest record, 2010's Junior (Rounder), was perhaps her most concise artistic statement with a band to date, bringing her unique guitar style into power rock-trio form. Spin awarded the album eight out of 10 stars, and USA Today called the songs "bracing and fascinating."For this next phase, King has decided to take all of these musical experiences back to where it all began—one woman and a guitar.The complete tour dates are below:February 23 Museum of Modern Art: Celeste Bartos Theatre, New York, NYFebruary 26 Salon Vive Cuervo, Mexico City, MexicoFebruary 28 The Loft - UC San Diego, San Diego, CAMarch 2 Largo at the Coronet, West Hollywood, CAMarch 3 College of the Sequoias Theatre, Visalia, CAMarch 5 Ashkenaz, Berkeley, CAMarch 6 Harlow's Night Club, Sacramento, CAMarch 8 Jambalaya, Arcata, CAMarch 9 WOW Hall, Eugene, ORMarch 10 Mississippi Studios, Portland, ORMarch 11 The Triple Door, Seattle, WAMarch 12 Biltmore Cabaret, Vancouver, BC, CanadaMarch 24 Cedar Cultural Center, Minneapolis, MNMarch 25 Space, Evanston, ILMarch 26 The Old Rock House, St. Louis, MOMarch 28 Southgate House, Newport, KYMarch 29 The Birchmere, Alexandria, VAMarch 30 World Cafe Live, Philadelphia, PAApril 1 Center for the Arts, Natick, MAApril 2 Iron Horse, Northampton, MAApril 3 Infinity Hall, Norfolk, CTApril 7 City Winery, New York, NYApril 8 City Winery, New York, NYApril 9 Binghamton University, Binghamton, NY
