Indie-rock's darling couple of Jason Hammel and Kori Gardner (Mates of State) have been enlisted by scorching hot Santogold for selected tour dates starting September 28 at the House of Blues in Chicago, and concluding on October 14th at Los Angeles' legendary Wiltern Theater, with selected dates afterwards. Their fifth album Re-Arrange Us (released back on May 20th) has been a favorite around here for the past couple of months. Jason's danceable drum kit works nicely to support Kori's melody driven keys, and it all gets gift wrapped under the couples' affectionate vocal duet. The result is a perfect antidote to the impending autumn gloom as it evokes a poppy sound reminiscent of summer afternoons and young love. Prior to the tour, Mates of State will also be making a special appearance on Nickelodean's YO GABBA GABBA! on September 23rd. Be sure to get in on the live action love fest while you can. - Chris Gayomali Mates of State on Tour: Sep 25 - Emo's Outside - Austin, Texas Sep 26 - Austin City Limits Festival - Austin, Texas Sep 27 - Midpoint Music Festival - Newport, Kentucky Sep 28 - House of Blues - Chicago, Illinois Sep 29 - Fine Line Music Caf - Minneapolis, Minnesota Sep 30 - Liberty Hall - Lawrence, Kansas Oct 1 - Gothic Theater - Denver, Colorado Oct 4 - The Showbox SODO - Seattle, Washington Oct 5 - Crystal Ballroom - Portland, Oregon Oct 7 - The Fillmore - San Francisco, California Oct 10 - House of Blues - San Diego, California Oct 11 - House of Blues - Las Vegas, Nevada Oct 13 - House of Blues - Anaheim, California Oct 14 - The Wiltern - Los Angeles, California Oct 16 - Northern MI University - Marquette, Michigan Oct 17 - Calvin College Fine Arts Center - Grand Rapids, Michigan Oct 18 - Kalamazoo State Theater - Kalamazoo, Michigan Oct 19 - Magic Stick - Detroit, Michigan
