Heads up West Coast: One of those double bills you know you do not want to miss, is makin’ its way West. The Tweedy/Minus Five cavalcade of stars is on their way to possibly playing your home town or within an easy car ride…

Saturday, March 7th, both groups worked out any any bugs that needed fixin, filled up the gas tanks, and headed north to Minneapolis now as we speak; with the wind at their backs they’s a truckin’ west on I-90 to the Pac NW, then down I-5, and then thru the desert finally endin’ up in Colorado. (See the schedule, below)

For this trip the Minus Five mainman Scott McCaughey is packing a full tour supplement (extra guitar: Peter Buck; drums: Linda Pitmon; bass: Mike Giblin) and they are amped up and roaring.

With this new bird, Tweedy(the band); as in any Jeff Tweedy joint; you know , you will NEVER be short changed; especially now that Jeff’s got son Spencer banging the drums. These Tweedy boys are joined by a new set of musicians that are helping keep the Tweedy household alive with something new.

In closing, this tour has that double shot that screams even begs for you to have the common sense to: GET THERE EARLY
