Joy Formidable

Joy Formidable kick off their 2012 tour tonight in San Francisco, with two consecutive dates scheduled at The Independent. From there they’ll go about packing 16 shows into a 21-day time frame, with support the whole way through from equally raucous A Place to Bury Strangers. You can also catch them at Sasquatch Festival when it comes to the Gorge in Washington from May 25-28.
