Perfume Genius No Shape Tour Kicks off Tuesday at Glass House w/ Kristin Kontrol

We go back to the early days with Perfume Genius–that’s Mike’s fresh face, alongside Alan, when we first caught him at the Matador at 21 festival in Las Vegas back in 2010 (more from that show here)–so it’s been quite the ride to track his blossoming into the performing star and, er, genius songwriter he is today.

He’s about to embark on a Fall tour in support of his lauded fourth LP, No Shape–that’s the new vibrant video for the single “Wreath” taken from it below–alternating headline dates with supporting the xx. It kicks off Tuesday, September 26, at the Glass House in Pomona, with opener Kristin Kontrol. Tickets and show info here.
