American Babies Announce 'Masquerade Ball of Light & Dark' Shows

Article Contributed by The Royal Pota… | Published on Wednesday, September 28, 2016

As part of the upcoming American Babies 'Epic Tour From East to West,the band is throwing four 'Masquerade Ball of Light & Dark' shows in Boulder, CO (10/22), Chicago, IL (10/29), New York, NY (11/5) and Mill Valley, CA (11/19).  For these four performances we ask that attendees dress in black and white and wear Masquerade Masks of their choosing

“A group of our fans in Rhode Island organized a group of people to wear masks similar to the characters from the cover of our “Epic Battle” album cover to a show, and we just loved it,” says frontman and guitarist Tom Hamilton.  "It was super cool to play to an audience that was dressed up like that, and we wanted to expand on the concept.” 

The band will also be putting on their musical masquerades for these performances and performing  the music of Radiohead in Boulder, The Beatles in Chicago, David Bowie’s Blackstar album in New York, and The Dead (with some special guests) in Mill Valley for the 11/19 show (11/18’s show will be a two set American Babies performance).  These themes “just felt right to pair with these cities and venues”, explains Hamilton, and “working on and rehearsing these songs has already been incredible, we can’t wait for the show.” 

Tickets to the shows in Mill Valley go on-sale tomorrow, Wednesday 9/28 at Noon PT, the rest are on-sale now.  Links for these four shows, along with info the rest of the tour are at
