Del the Funky Homosapien Announces Tour Dates Includes SXSW Showcases with Spoon, Dizzee Rascal, El-P, and Devin the Dude
Del The Funky Homosapien – Eleventh Hour (Definitive Jux)
Release Date: 03/11/08
Just days after releasing his brand new video for “Workin’ It,” the first single off of his soon to be released album Eleventh Hour, Del the Funky Homosapien has announced a string of tour dates, including two performances at this year’s South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas. The West Coast MC will kick things off with two sure to be high profile events on Thursday, March 13th – first opening for indie rock hotshots Spoon in a free outdoor event at Lady Bird Lake Stage and later that night taking the stage at the Def Jux showcase alongside fellow Jukies Dizzee Rascal, El-P, and more at The Scoot Inn. He’ll then hit the road for a March 20th appearance on the MySpace stage at Atlanta’s A3C Festival before a string of shows up the east coast culminating in a March 26th performance at New York’s Highline Ballroom. See below for full tour dates.
The video for “Workin It” premiered Monday, February 25th on mtvU’s THE LAB. Those who missed the show (or who just can’t get enough of “Workin It”) can check it out online now. The track is also available for download at all major digital music stores.
Eleventh Hour, Del’s long anticipated eighth studio album, hits stores on March 11th via Definitive Jux records.
