Sounds like everything's turning up roses these days for el broski with the froski. For those in the cheap seats, we're referring to Mr. Rob Drabkin, the proud owner of Denver's most distinctive do. The singer-songwriter was just tapped to open seventeen dates on Davy Knowles and Back Door Slam's upcoming tour, which kicks off on Friday, November 20 in Indianapolis. Drabkin, who's also slated to perform at the Upland Music Festival alongside Soul Asylum and Jason Reeves next month, warmed up some dates for Knowles and company earlier this year. Clearly he made quite the impression with his chill guy acoustic rock to be invited back out. Although his music doesn't do much for us, evidently it's a hit with just about everybody else with ears. Go figure. Before the tour begins, Drabkin is playing a few local gigs including one tonight at Jonesy's Eat Bar and another this Saturday, October 17 at Everyday Joes in Fort Collins. See Drabkin's full itenerary after the jump.
