Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears Extend 2009 Tour into June, Performing at ACL

Not content with leaving the road, Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears have decided to extend their tour and are bringing their soulful tunes to city near you. In addition to finishing their tour tonight in Alabama with Robert Randolph, they are headed back to Texas to take part in the KTSW Mr. Fest in San Marcos. On May 6, they will be performing a FREE instore at Houston's Cactus Music (2110 Portsmouth) at 5:30PM and then a few a few days later on the 8th will be back in Austin at Emo's with Lucero (purchase those tickets here for $12). And then in June, they start a tour with the New York Dolls. Oh, did I mention they'll be playing at this year's Austin City Limits Festival too (not sure which day yet though)?

Currently this month read about Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears in Spin Magazine and Paste. Also be sure to check out their video for "Sugarfoot", which we happened to post last month. You can purchase their full-length album, Tell 'Em What Your Name Is! via Lost Highway Records.
