He will play in September before January's festival

Big Day Out-bound Texan blues blaster Gary Clark Jr has announced a couple of showcase shows in September before he comes back to the country in January for the festival.

With only an EP to his name - a debut album will be out through Warner in October - Clark is already making waves, and joined a band featuring Mick Jagger, Jeff Beck and BB King to perform for President Obama at the White House earlier this year.

The guitarist has also featured at most of the major festivals around the world and will release a tour edition of his EP Bright Lights Friday 7 September.

To introduce himself to Australian fans, he'll be playing in Melbourne and Sydney. Dates below.
