The funk masters of The Motet recently outlined their plans for the beginning of 2018 with the announcement of sixteen new dates across January through April of next year. For the first wave of dates for their upcoming winter and spring tour, the Colorado-based funk act will focus primarily on the Western half of the United States. The tour begins on January 12th at Ft Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, kicking off a string of five dates in Colorado that will also see the group hit Telluride, Aspen, Keystone, and Fort Collins.
In February, The Motet will continue their tour across the Rocky Mountain region, starting with a two-night stand at Crystal Bay Club in Crystal Bay, Nevada—February 17th’s performance will see support by The Main Squeeze, while February 18th’s performance will see support by Monophonics. From there, after a one-off date at Salt Lake City’s State Room on February 22nd, the band will play Jackson, Wyoming’s Pink Garter for two nights on February 23rd and 24th.
The following month, The Motet will embark on a four-night run across March 15th through 18th, with the group hitting Missoula, Montana; Sandpoint, Idaho; Seattle, Washington; and Bellingham, Washington. Rounding out this first announcement of 2018 tour dates, to start off April, The Motet will set their sights eastward, with performances at Washington, D.C.’s 9:30 Club on April 5th and Boston’s Paradise Rock Club on April 7th.
