Pre-order Blitzen Trapper's "American Goldwing" album or fall tour tickets for a wonderful mess of goodies

By Nancy Woo

Portland, OR-based gentle, woodsy alt-folk band Blitzen Trapper.

That's right, after about seven successful years and six studio albums, Blitzen Trapper is set to release another full-length album September 13th, 2011. The lucky news for Blitzen Trapper fans is that you can pre-order American Goldwing from

If you do that, you have your options of ordering it in CD form or digital download, and for the vinyl-heads out there, limited supplies of black vinyl and white vinyl are available for your pleasure. Plus, when you pre-order, you'll be given special access to stream the entire album online starting August 16th. Sounds like Blitzen Trapper really want to please their fans. I can get behind that.

And we're not done yet. You can also pre-order a limited amount of tickets to Blitzen Trapper's fall tour from the website. The five-piece alternative folk sensation will be traveling with the band Dawes from L.A., who have been called by Rolling Stone "authentically vintage."

Crooningly acoustic folk band Dawes.

Ordering from that website will generously include all the parking, facility fees and ticketing fees for the show, AND you will receive an instant download of the 6-track Blitzen Trapper/Dawes tour EP. Okay, I'm not even done listing the goodies in this package. If you order from the site, you can add a special tour t-shirt that will not be available at the show. Why not go VIP all the way, huh?

The general on-sale tickets will be available at most ticketing outlets starting August 12th, but geez, why do that, when you can load up on all the fanware you could possibly want for this tour?
