Jay Brannan Announces North American Tour
The tour will include a performance at Anti*Pop '08 and will conclude with an already sold out hometown performance at Joe's Pub in New York City. This tour will be in support of his critically acclaimed debut album goddamned which was released earlier this year on Brannan's own Great Depression Records label. In addition, Jay will be releasing a new music video for the hit song "Can't Have It All" to coincide with the upcoming US tour.
Brannan has operated an enviable online campaign from his studio apartment, premiering bedroom versions of his songs on MySpace, YouTube and Facebook. An EP entitled Unmastered has sold over 30,000 tracks through iTunes and a 1,000 piece run of this EP, each with a different Polaroid cover, sold out in a day. Almost 4 million people have watched his clips which were shot entirely from his laptop. This online devotion has translated to a live draw, with worldwide sellouts including Los Angeles, London, Paris, Cape Town, Tel Aviv, Toronto, and Vancouver.
