Hey! My buds The Whines are on tour from Portland, OR and I booked a couple of shows for the band while the party lands here in NYC for three dates this coming weekend. Come say hello and eat some hot dogs, unless of course a certain spirit known as The Haze has a problem w/ you, in which case i'd watch your neck. I know, he's gone, but a ghost w/ an axe? Even scarier, so please be careful on your way to these shows. Longhairs welcome.

Come to these shows and the remaining dates to grab The Whines new single on the classic 45 rpm vinyl format only, "Shootinhead" b/w "Straybird" released by Mount Saint Mountain - limited to only 300 pressed so come to the shows if you want one. (as always, check your local listings, some of the dates shown there aren't current, don't forget Nashville to end the tour) The band should also have copies of their excellent VTWrecks endorsed "Hell To Play" debut LP (Meds/Exiled Records) from 2010 along for the tour.
