Veteran musicians who all play in other indie rock acts and have left a significant legacy, Ken Stringfellow (Posies), Jesse Chandler (Midlake, Mercury Rev), Jonathan Donahue (Mercury Rev) and Grasshopper (Grasshopper) have come together to form Tears of Silver.
The band is currently on a pop-up tour that includes a Cleveland stop on Oct.7.
At each show, the group will play a set that includes tracks from each of the members' respective acts as well as handful of cover tunes.
The performances will take place in "handpicked alternative spaces" chosen by the band. The locations will be kept secret; only the dates and cities have been announced, and the actual venues will be announced to the ticket holders only, 48 hours before the show.
The dates will mark the first time Mercury Rev's music has been performed in many parts of the states for nearly a decade.
