Chris Stamey - Live in Aug. & Sept.

Chris Stamey will be performing in North Carolina and elsewhere in the coming weeks, both as an opening act for the legendary Television and with the (not quite as legendary) Chapel Hill combo Sneakers.

Chris will open for Television on Sept. 6 & Sept. 10 (more info HEREHERE)

Sneakers' previous reunion shows were in 2007 & '08. Now, another show with Chris, Mitch Easter, Will Rigby and Robert Keely is scheduled for the Hopscotch Music Fest in Raleigh, N.C. on Sept. 8, when they will open for Television at Memorial Auditorium.

SNEAKERS — as they were in Durham, N.C., one or two years ago...
In related news, Chris will take part in the Be Loud Sophie Foundation benefit show Aug. 27 at Cat's Cradle in Carrboro, N.C. The Be Loud Sophie site says Chris will premiere "new songs from Occasional Shivers, a 'musical entertainment' in the works." A (presumably) related show will take place at UNC-Chapel Hill on Sept. 23, during which Chris and numerous other musicians will reimagine "the language of the Great American Songbook, as jazz meets pop against a backdrop of 1960s Manhattan."
More info about the latter is HERE.

Thanks to eagle-eye Fantom for alerting me to this page on Yep Roc's site.
