Weiss Family Tour
Many of you have been wondering and asking us “What exactly is the Weiss Family?” Well here you go…
Fans of mewithoutYou will get to see another side of the Philly experimental band this fall when the Weiss Family hits the road this August for a tour with Damien Jurado and Psalters. This will be an intimate version of the band for fans and an alternate take on their classic songs that you won’t want to miss!
Joining brothers Aaron on acoustic guitar and Mike Weiss on electric guitar will be Mike’s wife Sarah on keyboards, along with Matt Chapin on trumpet. Look for a few surprises, friends and additional instrumentalists as well. This is most definitely not an “unplugged” outing; however, the percussion section will be far from the traditional “rock drums” mewithoutYou fans are used to. It is a chance to hear mewithoutYou songs interpreted in a new way as the Weiss Family puts a new twist on their impressive body of work. They’ll also be mixing it up with an eclectic selection of covers, but you’ll have to check out one of these shows to find out what they’ll be!
Joining on this tour of family and friends with be songwriter Damien Jurado and gypsy tribal activist band Psalters.
