Shpongle, the British-based psybient/trance/downtempo dance band, hits the United States for a brief series of shows. The first two gigs, on October 28 at new York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom and going coast to coast on October 29 at Oakland’s Fox Theatre, feature Joe Russo, Furthur/Bustle in your Hedgerow/Rumble Dog/Duo drummer. Russo is currently splitting his time between numerous projects—personal and musical—and rejoins Furthur for the next leg of their tour, which begins next Thursday, November 3 in new Hampshire. Be sure to check out our new site feature with Russo for more details.
Tickets for the two October Shpongle shows are currently on sale, before the band, led by noted DJ and musician Simon Posford, heads to Texas for two more dates in November without the popular drummer in tow.
