San Francisco folk and bluegrass band The Brothers Comatose have already been announced as part of the excellent Dashville Skyline alt-country and Americana festival and now it looks like we’re going to get a buch of sideshows as well.

The Brothers Comatose will be touring their latest album City Painted Gold

“We wrote this album living in San Francisco as it was changing from a weird, art-friendly mecca to a place that only super rich tech workers could afford,” Ben Morrison from the band explained. “Things started changing – venues were closing down, and artist and musician friends moved away. What is San Francisco without its weirdoes? That’s what the song City Painted Gold is about and that’s why it’s the name of this record.”

Check out the full list of dates for The Brothers Comatose below:

Wednesday 28th September – Retreat Hotel, Melbourne, VIC
Thursday 29th September – Django Bar, Sydney, NSW
Friday 30th September – Rad Bar, Wollongong, NSW
