Kurt Vile & Cate Le Bon - 2020 U.S. Tour

(poster art by

Tickets for Kurt Vile's 2020 spring tour with Cate Le Bon go on sale this Friday (December 20) at 10am local time (links below).  The shows -- featuring the accompaniment of Stella Mozgawa and Stephen Black --- are billed as "solo and together" and that seems self-explanatory but perhaps you might inquire with Reddit or the Maytag repair person in your neighborhood if you need to know more.
