Communist Daughter is striking out from the Twin Cities and approaching their summer tour a bit unconventionally.
The band will open for songwriter Jason Isbell at the end of the summer, but in the meantime, they’ve been looking for house venues via Twitter. The idea is to expand their market while branching off the typical tour track—breaking bread at local restaurants, in towns normally bypassed by bigger acts. Their Instagram looks like an episode ofDiners, Drive-ins, and Dives, and last week the band tweeted that they would gain 25 pounds from Biloxi, Miss. to Atlanta.
With a new album in the works, it’s the perfect time to gather nationwide experiences.
