The Week in Tours: Nite Jewel, Italoboyz

South By Southwest, WMC, and other festivals are upon us, as evidenced by this week’s roundup of artist tours. When not in Austin or Miami, the likes of YACHT, Italoboyz, Nite Jewel, and others will be performing in Europe, North America, Australia, and El Paso.

Without further ado, this week’s dates:

Nite Jewel
Relative newcomers to the scene, Ramona Gonzalez and partner-in-crime Emily Jane are catching ears with the minimalist dance-pop they make as Nite Jewel. See the lovely (and well-dressed) ladies on the road this spring as they support their debut album, Good Evening. Photo by Cap'n John.
