The Irish-born, Berlin-based DJ's busy year continues with another set of bookings across the pond.
It's fair to say that 2013 has been a good year for the Irish artist formally known as Niall Mannion. His well-received debut LP Changing Days came out on Permanent Vacation back in February, and his gig schedule is as packed as it's ever been. This latest North American endeavor, which follows a trip stateside in March, will be his most expansive one on the continent yet.
The tour starts in Montreal next Friday (or rather, early Saturday morning) at Stereo, where he's billed alongside Matthew Dekay, after which he'll play Footwork in Toronto with My Favorite Robot. Appearances in NYC and Chicago are up next before Mannion hits New Orleans for a Red Bull Music Academy event also featuring Aril Brikha—that's another regional RBMA show (following one in Austin, Texas last month) which will help raise funds for Frequency, a nonprofit committed to preventing and curing hearing loss. All attendees will receive free earplugs.
After a night in Denver with Amsterdam's Job Jobse, Mannion's tour finishes up with two West Coast gigs on Sunday the 29th. First, he'll play for Anonymous Love in LA with Midland, and then he'll head to Seattle for one of Decibel Festival 2013's final events, also featuring Art Department and Maxxi Soundsystem.
Tickets to the shows in Montreal, NYC and LA are available on RA.
