Curtis Eller’s American Circus is a band, not a thing, and they’re preparing to embark on a 16 date tour of the UK. Eller is a prolific songwriter and performer who’s banjo driven songs describe a dreamlike vision of American history where “all points in time have collapsed into one” and his backing band are described as “brutish” and “inelegant” which is a refreshing change to the usual hyper-bollock PR we get sent. Here are those dates.
