STG Presents just announced that Michael Franti & Spearhead will headline 103.7 The Mountain’s annual Winter Warmth show, which will kick off at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 8 at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre.

Tickets are $32, and you’ll be able to get them through Tickets.com beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 6. Franti and company are out in support of new album “The Sound of Sunshine.”

Next month’s show will be the hard working band’s third pass through these parts this year after an August stop at Marymoor Park and an opening slot for John Mayer at KeyArena last spring.

I caught up with Franti before the latter, a tour that was embroiled in controversy after Mayer made racially insensitive remarks in an interview for with Playboy. Click here to find audio clips of Franti reacting to that or here to listen to him reflect on his career and music.
