Lee Ranaldo Touring Solo and Beating it with Kerouac

Thanks to our friends over at Brooklyn Vegan we know that Lee Ranaldo will be playing live again and doing some fun stuff.
Ranaldo Band Live 2012
The coolest thing mentioned is the special Kerouac Project show at Joe's Pub Ranaldo will be participating in on 10/30. more info here:
Legendary composer David Amram and his Quintet perform Beat-era classics, and accompany actor John Ventimiglia (The Sopranos), poets Bob Holman and Frank Messina, and guitarist Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth) as they read the works of Jack Kerouac. Guest speaker: author and biographer Joyce Johnson. Musical guest: Tyrone Cotton. Proceeds support the Jack Kerouac Writer-in-Residence Project of Orlando, Florida, home to more than 50 writers since 2000
This sounds like a show we may need to hit. We have named this site as a homage to Whitman but if we had to choose we would probably say Kerouac's On The Road is our favorite book. That's a cool lineup while Ranaldo's other dates are all solo acoustic shows. Dates and venues listed below a this great video of live acoustic Ranaldo.
