Minnesota-based indie-pop songwriter Jeremy Messersmith and his band have announced The Graveyard Tour, named after his latest release The Reluctant Graveyard (read the gfp review), and consists of a bunch of summer dates out to the East Coast visiting and performing at graveyards in each city. Offering fans the ability to pay what they wish on his Bandcamp site, Messersmith has put together a brand new video where he sings a medley of popular songs in which the lyrics are commonly mistaken for something else. It's smile-inducing.
For those of you in the twin cities area, Messersmith will be playing a special show this weekend at the Fitzgerald Theater on April 9th with Dessa Darling, Chris Koza, Brian Tighe and Lucy Michelle. You can check out all his tour dates and locations here.
