SAF Records has announced fall tour dates for one of its artist, alterna-rapper The Show Is The Rainbow. The artist with the given name of Darren Keen is still touring behind his April release, Gymnasia. If you haven't seen The Show Is The Rainbow perform, then you haven't seen live music. Keen's show is an awesomely raucous multimedia presentation that often leaves him a shirtless, sweaty mess of a electronic concert. Or, to be much more brief, it's fucking kickass.

If you're seeing Girl Talk and Dan Deacon in Minneapolis on Oct. 5th, then you should get there early for The Show Is The Rainbow. He'll be opening the show, along with Minneapolis-based Tay "Chocolate Rain" Zonday.
