Wayne Krantz has will tour the U.S. this fall with his Undercover Pop Tour.
The innovative and improvisational guitarist will bring his unique sensibilities to the works of a wide cross-section of musical artists, including Bob Dylan, Prince, Talking Heads, Nine Inch Nails, Sonic Youth, Paul McCartney, Jethro Tull, Talib Kweli & Mos Def, Ryuichi Nakamoto and others. Taking two different bands on the road for this tour, Krantz will perform from October 4 through 9 and October 25 through November 2 with 2x Salvation, with Star Truck playing the October 12–23 leg.
The tour begins on October 4 in Sellersville, Pennsylvania, before hitting Krantz’s home town of New York City on October 7. The tour continues throughout the month of October.
After the East Coast run, Krantz will head west, beginning at El Corazon in Seattle and continuing on to Oakland’s famed Yoshi’s before heading south to Santa Cruz and then on to Asia and Europe. Krantz will be joined by Zach Danziger on drums throughout. Kevin Scott will play bass with 2x Salvation, and Nate Wood will handle bass duties with Star Truck.
Krantz’s most recent album is 2014’s Good Piranha/Bad Piranha, on which he presented four tracks, each with two interpretations, for a striking collection of engaging group improvisation and creative compositional approaches.
