Singer, songwriter and guitarist Alejandro Escovedo and guitarist/R.E.M. co-founder Peter Buck will join forces this fall for a round of theater shows scattered across the western U.S.

The duo will kick off their trip together with an Oct. 24 performance in Seattle, WA. The schedule features 14 concerts, including a two-night stand Oct. 31-Nov.1 in Los Angeles.

Escovedo will precede this intimate trek with a run through the eastern U.S. as part of The Fauntleroys. The fairly-new rock outfit teams Escovedo on bass with guitarist Ivan Julian, singer Nicholas Tremulis and drummer Linda Pitmon. The band's debut EP surfaces next week (9/16) via Plowboy Records.

Buck has been spending time performing occasionally with the alt-rock supergroup The Baseball Project, which also includes Pitmon on drums, along with Scott McCaughey and Steve Wynn. That outfit unleashed its aptly titled third album, "3rd," in March.
