As if a couple Midwest solo shows, and a 2 night stand in Austin during the SXSW Film Fest isn't enough, we've got a cluster of West Coast Spring dates to announce with the one and only Garland Jeffreys.
We're thrilled to be backing Garland as well as doing our own thing on these shows. What can I tell you about Garland? (People get a kick out of hearing he was Lou Reed's college roommate. Who swept the floor? With who?) How about that he made one of the hands-down greatest Rock and Roll singles of all time? "Wild In The Streets," people! AND he's been out there doing it ever since. (By the way, that's a fact about W.I.T.S. I'm in no mood to argue.
