The ‘Hollywood Forever Tour’ will kick-off on Dec. 15 in Chicago, IL at Subterranean. The trek will take Last Import all the way down to Stubbs Indoors in Austin, TX, and back up to play with Kansas City locals Radkey at Record Bar before their homecoming show with Bad Bad Hats & Ratboys in First Avenue’s Mainroom on Dec. 21!

The ‘Hollywood Forever Tour’ comes just a few months after the band completed their very first journey on the road — the ‘Fast Times Tour‘ — a two-week trek to the East Coast and back which found them playing shows almost every night in some of the best music scenes in the country, including Chicago, Fort Wayne, Pittsburgh, Brooklyn, West Chester, Charleston (WV), Nashville, St. Louis, & Des Moines!

Voted City Pages’ 2019 Best New Band, Last Import started in 2014 and has skyrocketed from there. Featuring Emily Bjorke (guitar, lead vocals), Grace Baldwin (bass, backing vocals), and Jane Halldorson (drums, backing vocals), the band put out their first professionally produced EP, titled Songs for Adam, in January of 2018. They then released their first full length, self-titled album, Last Import, and sold out the 7th Street Entry on Feb. 1, 2019. Most recently, they finished their ‘Fast Times’ Tour to the East Coast! 

Last Import has made waves in the Twin Cities by opening for Foster The People at their secret afterparty, playing at the dearly-departed Triple Rock Social Club, rocking The Palace Theater with Bastille, LANY, & Albert Hammond Jr, gracing First Avenue’s main stage alongside Flamin Oh’s, Habibi, & Real Estate, opening for Minneapolis legend Bob Mould of Hüsker Dü at a sold-out show, and playing with Wavves in Chicago at Subterranean.
