Indie Troubadour John Craigie Announces KeepItWarm Tour, Supporting 2020 Album “Asterisk the Universe”

Today, indie-folk singer/songwriter John Craigie announces that he is back on the road where he shines brightest, displaying his articulate songwriting, telling his candid stories and humorous anecdotes and leaving everything on the stage. After releasing his acclaimed 2020 album Asterisk the Universe, Craigie was unable to share his signature blend of songcraft and wry wit with live audiences. Now the charismatic singer/songwriter kicks off his 3rd year of the KeepItWarm Tour, which begins November 10th & 11th with back-to-back shows in Arcata, CA. For a full list of tour dates see below. Tickets go on sale July 16th at 10am local time on Craigie’s website HERE.

After selling out numerous dates on his 2019 KeepItWarm Tour including shows in Chico, Sacramento, Berkeley, Santa Barbara, Seattle, Ashland, Bend, Portland, Fort Collins, Boulder and more, Craigie and crew are coming back with one of the biggest tours of his career. Craigie moves on to bucket list theaters and clubs like The Fillmore (San Francisco), El Rey Theater (Chico), Lobero Theatre (Santa Barbara) and Bluebird Theater (Denver) with the hunger of a bear coming out of hibernation. In the tradition of past tours, Craigie has partnered with nonprofits for these shows to help the communities he plays for, with $1 from each ticket sold going to a regional nonprofit. Organizations include Western Center on Law & Poverty (November California Shows) Northwest Harvest (December Pacific Northwest Shows) and Hunger Free Colorado (December Colorado Shows). Craigie will be celebrating Asterisk the Universe and performing all the new songs and stories from quarantine.

More than just a show, a John Craigie performance is a collective event, as audiences personally connect and relate to Craigie’s narratives and characters. This was captured on Craigie’s last live album Opening For Steinbeck, which earned raves from fellow musicians and fans alike. Check out “Don’t Ask” live from Portland, OR right before the pandemic HERE.
