Brooklyn’s one-woman alt-folk show Waxahatchee will be embarking on a winter tour following the success of her sophomore album Cerulean Saltwhich was released in March of this year via Don Giovanni records, and the tour includes two Bay Area stops during the month of December.

Post-P.S. Eliot break-up, Katie Crutchfield embraced a more personal tone. The result was the affecting, intimate Waxahatchee, named after a creek in her home state of Alabama. The project’s first release, American Weekend, recorded in her own bedroom on an old 8-track, was emotional and scoring, and eventually led to her second effort, the band-backed (and warmly lauded) Cerulean Salt.

Tickets are still available for Waxahatchee’s gigs at Rickshaw Stop and Oakland’s 1-2-3-4 Go!, so get them now to catch Crutchfield along with her twin sister’s band Swearin’.
