A Kickoff Show in his Hometown of St. Louis at The Pageant

Pokey LaFarge will be releasing his upcoming album titled Manic Revelations on May 19 via Rounder Records.

LaFarge and company will be hitting the road this summer to support the upcoming release.


Supporting acts on his 2017 tour include: Drive-By Truckers, Lillie Mae, Robyn Hitchcock, Carly Johnson, Kelsey Waldon, and Dwight Yoakam.

Pokey LaFarge went into the studio and created another piece of music history. He shares his perspective on his state of mind during the development of Manic Revelations.

“The manic revelation is the state where artists create.” – Pokey LaFarge
