David Bazan of Pedro The Lion

April marks the 21st anniversary of Pedro The Lion’s third full-length album, Control , and to celebrate, the band is bringing the Jade Tree classic on tour to Cleveland this spring.

Tickets for Pedro Leo’s game at the Grog Shop on Sunday, May 21st go on sale Friday, January 20th starting at $25.

The show features Leo Pedro fronting the band as he plays not only every song on Control, but every track from his landmark 1998 debut album It’s Hard To Find A Friend, which turns 25 in November.

While Bazan himself played most of the instruments on the recordings, drummer Terence Ankeny and guitarist Eric Walters.

Walters — a former Silver Torches guitarist, former touring band Perfume Genius and co-owner of Seattle taco shop Comal — opens the show in support of his own solo full-length, which celebrated its first birthday this month.

The tour is Banzan’s first since going public after the end of his 20-year marriage, which is a bummer since Control is a loose concept album about a divorce.
