“WEIRD AL” YANKOVIC
You may remember that in 2018, “Weird Al” Yankovic went on the ‘Ill Advised Vanity Tour’ where he performed only his original songs, with (almost) none of his famous parodies or crazy costumes. He’s doing it again in 2022, for a massive 133-date U.S./Canada tour that will have him out from April through October. “I’ve loved doing every single incarnation of my live show, but honestly the Vanity tour is the most fun I’ve ever had on stage,” Yankovic said in a statement, “so I’ve been dying to get back out there and torture everybody with it once again!”

Head here for all dates.
AMYL & THE SNIFFERS
Damn: Australia’s Amyl & The Sniffers were due to be in NYC next week for a one-off show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Monday (12/6), but unfortunately that show has been canceled as singer Amy Taylor and drummer Gus Romer recently tested positive for Covid. They write, “the band is very dissapointed but safety and health first.” Amyl’s North American tour starts in April.

Thursday’s upcoming holiday shows with Laura Jane Grace and Vein.fm include a home state NJ show on December 30 at Starland Ballroom (tickets) and their 2022 tour with Cursive, Jeremy Enigk (of Sunny Day Real Estate), and The Appleseed Cast hits NYC’s Irving Plaza on January 26 (tickets), and now they’ve added a third NYC-area show. “That’s right we are coming to NJ’s spiritual twin,” the band says, “LOOOOONG ISLAND.”
