Just Announced: Wesley Stace sheds his stage name for fall tour (playing World Cafe Live October 3rd)

WesleyStaceColorWesley Stace, better known by his moniker John Wesley Harding, just announced a fall tour to support his anticipated self-titled album coming out September 17th. Swapping the established stage name for his own, Stace mentions in his Wall Street Journal interview that this album portrays a more intimate feeling inspired by autobiographical accounts. Along with his headlining tour dates, Stace will also host a traveling version of his Cabinet of Wonders, featuring artists including John McCrea (from Cake), Alec Ounsworth (from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah), and regular Cabinet collaborator Eugene Mirman. The World Cafe Live will welcome the celebrated author, NPR personality, and singer/songwriter October 3rd. Find more information and tickets for the All Ages show here.
