Tiny Masters of Today Mini Tour
The Chicago performance will be particularly special as Tiny Masters Of Today serve as both opening band and backing band for Daniel Johnston's headline show.
In Philly Tiny Masters of Today are set to open for DFA 's Free Energy. The band – who recently rocked out on the main stage at the Coney Island Siren Festival – are brother and sister Ivan and Ada (ages 15 and 13 respectively). Performing with them on stage will be drummer Jackson Pollis.
It has certainly been an action packed journey for Tiny Masters Of Today. Almost overnight, the band went from a few homemade recordings on a MySpace page to collaborating with Karen O and Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Kimya Dawson, Fred Schneider (B-52s) and Gibby Haynes (Butthole Surfers), being remixed by CSS and Liars, and touring the world. David Bowie even lauded their first homemade single as "Genius." Not bad for a band that double as full-time students in the NY Public School System.
