Perfume Genius aka Mike Hadreas has announced a spring tour that will bring him to DC to perform at 9:30 Club on Friday, March 25.
The dates mark some of his first live shows in these cities since the release of his critically acclaimed Set My Heart on Fire Immediately.
The album was released last year, appearing on 2020 end-of-year lists by TIME Magazine, New York Times, Variety, Entertainment Weekly, Pitchfork, Billboard, The New Yorker, Vogue, NPR, Stereogum, and many others.
The LP was produced by GRAMMY-winning producer Blake Mills and features contributions from musicians Jim Keltner, Pino Palladino, Matt Chamberlin and Rob Moose. It was recorded in Los Angeles, where Perfume Genius settled in 2017 with longtime partner and musical collaborator Alan Wyffels. The album explores and subverts concepts of masculinity and traditional roles, and introduces decidedly American musical influences.

Following the release of the album, Perfume Genius released IMMEDIATELY Remixes which sees every song on Set My Heart On Fire Immediately remixed in original running sequence by an all-star cast.
