Portland soul machine Liv Warfield has been hand-picked to open three dates of the Dave Matthews Band's summer tour. Warfield will be performing with her band as Liv & the Warfield Project at the strikingly beautiful Gorge Amphitheater in George, Wash. Sept 1-3.
Now, I don't know if you realize this, but the Dave Matthews Band is very popular. In fact, the band, which started in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1991, sold more tickets than any other touring act in the United States last year, except U2.
This is all good news for Warfield, who will be releasing her debut album, Embrace Me
, on September 9 (hopefully she'll have some advanced copies to sell to all those stoned frat boys).
