2013 “Great Nothing” Tour – LA, MS, TN, NC, AL


Tess Brunet is a New Orleans native, currently based in Nashville, who is known for her work with Dax Riggs in Deadboy & the Elephantmen, Twin Tigers, the Generationals, and most recently her project Au Ras Au Ras.

Henry Rollins has played Brunet on his show on KCRW and featured her on his show on IFC:

In her new band she’s a multi-instrumentalist, she plays keyboard and drums and other stuff as well.  She is a completely self-taught musician and if you go to my website, or the KCRW website, or the LA Weekly website and look up my radio notes you will see a really cool video that you can watch…It is a really really really cool record, she sent it to me the other day and I’m oh so thankful.  I wrote her a letter and I said “Tess, we’re going to play you on the radio, on my little show,” and she was very happy about that so we’re going to listen to a song from her brand new record.

The song “When The Night Arrives” off her first album Au Ras Au Ras was among our best of 2011:

This tour is in support of her new album The Great Nothing which is also excellent (see Ryan Johnson’s review):
