Brooklyn’s Sammy Rae & The Friends have been selling out shows coast to coast and show no signs of slowing down. After a wildly successful spring tour, including sold-out gigs at NYC’s Terminal 5, two nights at the Royale Boston, 9:30 Club in DC, Theatre of Living Arts in Philadelphia and more, the collective has just announced an extensive fall headline tour starting October 1st in Austin and wrapping up November 17 in Phoenix. The dates see the band tripling their venue sizes in some markets and playing back-to-back nights at both Seattle’s Showbox and Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre.
