Tour de Force

Jazz-Fusion BTBAM Side-Project Trioscapes Announce May Tour



In 2012 I went gaga for Trioscapes, the fusion/jazz side-project of Between the Buried and Me bassist Dan Briggs. I wrote nine (!) posts about the band’s then-new album Separate Realities and their subsequent tour with Scale the Summit, at which they absolutely rocked my Scion socks off. Seeing them live was a true treat, because as much as I love music that isn’t metal it’s rare that I get to experience it live, and what better way to do it than with musicians as stellar as these three?

If I’m not mistaken, the May tour dates Trioscapes just announced are their first since fall 2012, although don’t hold me to that. As busy as BTBAM are, I’d think Briggs would want some down time when he’s not recording or touring for his day job, ya know? But no rest for the weary. Here are the dates, and jam a Trioscapes track below:

05/02 Knoxville, TN – The Bowery

05/04 Chicago, IL – Beat Kitchen
05/05 Pontiac, MI – The Crofoot
05/06 Cleveland, OH – Now That’s Class
05/07 Erie, PA – Basement Transmissions
05/08 Pittsburgh, PA – Smiling Moose
05/11 Toronto, ON – Hard Luck Bar
