My Morning Jacket back on the road

Starting with their forthcoming European Tour Dates, My Morning Jacket will begin the "Spontaneous Curation Series," letting fan club members and concertgoers assist them in curating each night's set list through Twitter as they travel around the globe.

"Curating spontaneously is best achieved by communication within a community because otherwise, curating in a vacuum can lead one to spontaneously combust. However, a spontaneously curated show is the best way to achieve collective musical combustion. Concurrently, we are crazed with excitement and curiosity to see how Roll Call and concert goers spontaneously contribute to our eclectic collective curation!" - My Morning Jacket

Opening Song "Roll Call": Members of the My Morning Jacket "Roll Call" fan club will be getting details on how they will participate in choosing the opening song on each show on the tour, including all festival appearances.

"Encore Curation": Via Twitter, @mymorningjacket will send out tweets days before every performance with further instructions on how to submit songs for encores. As the band begins making their set list each night, they will choose a collection of songs based on all the entries.

Follow @mymorningjacket for further details and announcements on how to participate in the "Spontaneous Curation Series."
