Bill Callahan announces dates for intimate, coastless spring tour

Wry songsmith Bill Callahan has announced the dates for a 10-city tour beginning Apr. 30 in Oxford, Mississippi. And in news likely to disappoint any fans foolish enough to be seduced by the coasts’ empty charm, though his stops will span from the mighty Midwest to the Great Plains, Callahan won’t be going anywhere near an ocean.

This will be his first tour since summer 2011, when he went on the road to promote his album Apocalypse. Dates are below. [via Pitchfork]
