Rateliff and Fairchildren, who are slated to be joined at the Gothic by their friends in Snake Rattle Rattle Snake, Bad Weather California and A.Tom Collins, should be primed to throw down and in the mood for celebrating the holidays by then.
Next weekend, Rateliff is heading out to Big Sur to perform at the three-day Communion In the Redwoods Festival, alongside Jackie Greene, the Secret Sisters, John Vanderslice, Matthew and the Atlas and Themes, among others. And then later that week, he's heading up to the Great White North for a trio of dates with Mumford & Sons in Toronto, Hamilton and Montreal.
After the Canadian shows, meanwhile, Fairchildren -- Patrick Meese, Joseph Pope III, Julie Davis and James Han -- will be making their way to Chicago for a tour with Gregory Alan Isakov. On part of the tour, Fairchildren will open the shows and then serve as Isakov's backing band, before embarking on a series of dates with Blind Pilot, in which they'll simply back Isakov.
