We’ve been hearing for a while that Seattle indie act The Head and the Heart is the next big breakout band from the Pacific Northwest. Consider this their "breakout": After spending the summer opening for My Morning Jacket and the Decemberists, the folk-pop sextet and new Sub Pop signee will headline its first national tour this fall, starting in New Orleans and working their way back home. Kind of. There aren’t any Seattle dates on the calendar yet, but they plan to announce additional concerts in the next few weeks. Until then… consider a road trip to Vancouver.
