Sarah Jaffe will tour with The Old 97’s and Centro-Matic this summer
She makes a stop in Denton on July 7.
Denton singer/songwriter Sarah Jaffe announced two upcoming tours this summer, both with bands from the DFW area that are mighty loved in these parts. From May 26-June 11, Jaffe will tour with alt-country band The Old 97's. From June 22-July 9, she will tour with Denton group Centro-Matic.
It was really Suburban Nature, Jaffe's 2010 release, that got the media outside of the DFW area talking about her. We then saw Jaffe perform with Norah Jones (also from DFW), serenade listeners at Dallas' Wyly Theater, and play the 35 Conferette in Denton and SXSW in Austin. The New York Times said the latter was a must-see.
According to Jaffe's booking company, some of the performances on her upcoming tour will be placed on a DVD release called The Way Sound Leaves a Room, which is also the title of her new album, due out in the fall. They also send word that "Clementine" will be on the season finale of One Tree Hill on the CW.
