Erik Friedlander Opens For The Mountain Goats in May

Erik Friedlander has just announced five May dates opening for The Mountain Goats. This extends Erik's ambitious March and April gigging schedule, and is part of his burgeoning association with certain unsavory elements of the "indie rock scene." Earlier this month, Erik spent 11 hours at John Vanderslice's Tiny Telephone studio in San Francisco. The fruit of those labors will be heard on Vanderslice's new album, slated for August 2005 release. You can also hear his mandolin and cello playing on The Mountain Goats' wonderful new album, The Sunset Tree. It will be released in April, but if you're impatient you can hear Erik's star turn right now on The Dilaudid EP, a digital-only release available now via (Warning: It may be a bit complicated if you're not British and don't traffic in pounds sterling.)
