Rock and roll staples Little Feat are gearing up for some fun times ahead, as the group has just announced a handful of shows in the Northeast. While members Fred Tackett and Paul Barrere occasionally perform as a duo, this will mark the full band’s first shows in some time, and we couldn’t be more excited.Unfortunately, however, the run doesn’t kick off until September, so there’s plenty of time to build anticipation before the magic. The four-night run will see the band hit shows in Boston, Port Chester, Huntington, and Washington DC, bringing all of their classics to stage for an exciting round of performances.Check out the full schedule below, and head to the band’s website for details.
