Calexico and Iron & Wine are coming to Pittsburgh on Thursday, September 19th to play at Roxian Theatre with special guest Natalie Prass
Calexico and Iron & Wine will be on tour in support of their new full-length album, Years to Burn, which is their first collaboration since their 2005 EP In The Reins. Calexico and Iron & Wine just recently released Years to Burn, their first full–length album together. They first made an artistic connection with In the Reins, the 2005 EP that brought Sam Beam, Joey Burns and John Convertino together. The acclaimed collaboration introduced both acts to wider audiences and broadened Beam’s artistic horizons, but it was the shared experience of touring together in the tradition of Bob Dylan’s “Rolling Thunder Revue” that cemented the bond. Their metaphorical roads diverged in the years that followed, but they kept in touch and cross-pollinated where they could. Although they often talked about rekindling their collaboration in the studio and on stage, it wasn’t until last year that their schedules aligned.
