    After a touring hiatus, Benjamin Cartel will be returning to the Midwest in March for a special run of dates.

    Earning a buzz as one of New York City's up-and-coming songwriters, Benjamin Cartel put his solo career on hold in 2004, the year he co-founded the indie folk duo Kaiser Cartel.

    Years later, that band is still moving along... and Cartel's solo career has earned a new set of wheels too, thanks to an EP that bridges the gap between Wilco's wry rock 'n' roll and John Lennon's classic pop.

    Tour Dates:

    March 14 Minneapolis, MN 7th Street Entry w/Nuelore
    March 15 Duluth, MN Red Hearing Lounge "Matinee Show"
    March 16 Des Moines, IA KCWI Great Day Show
    March 16 Des Moines, IA Des Moines Social Club w/Dick Prall
