Brooklyn’s Locksley, a band that bears many similarities to
the Kinks, has been tapped to open Kinks singer Ray Davies’ 12-city U.S. tour
in November and December. In must be a deliriously good turn of events for the
baby band, but there’s more to it: They get to back Davies up, too.


Locksley (visit them on MySpace) is currently headlining MTV’s national Choose or
Lose tour, which wraps tonight in Vienna, VA. After an in-store performance Nov.
8 at Vintage Vinyl in Woodbridge, NJ, Locksley will take a few weeks off before
