Admittedly, we were nervous about Jacuzzi Boys' upcoming European tour. But we quickly changed our tone when Hardly Art assured us it'd be a land-based trek. Phew, what a relief.
European tours can be a real bummer. Shitty guides recklessly leading you into dangerously shallow waters, shoddy safety regulations ... Just ask the folks aboard Costa Concordia.
Shortly after South by Southwest, the Boys will embark on their Euro trip, a two-month trek kicking off in London and wrapping en Barcelona.
Tonight, Gabriel, Diego and Danny are opening the Sebadoh show at Grand Central. They'll hit the road later this month with King Khan and the Shrines on a sprint across the Deep South.
