Van Halen tour announcement coming soon?

This is sort of strange. Van Halen “announcing” a 2012 tour? No dates. No mention about a release date for a new album. No snippets of new songs in the video. Will this really happen or is this stunt going to backfire?

Radiohead 2012 US Tour (Texas, Texas, Texas, Florida, Florda, Missouri, Missouri, and a few other cities)

Not much of a tour, but perhaps more dates will be announced somewhere along the way. If you’re in Texas, Missouri, or Florida, though, you’ve got it made.

27-Feb Miami, FL American Airlines Arena
29-Feb Tampa, FL St. Pete Times Forum
1-Mar Atlanta, GA Philips Arena
3-Mar Houston, TX Toyota Center
5-Mar Dallas, TX American Airlines Center

Thursday in Columbus: Rival Schools at The Basement

YouTube Preview Image

I don’t know if fanboy would be the correct nomenclature to describe my affinity for Rival Schools frontman Walter Schreilfels, and I don’t think nostalgia would do the man justice. The fact of the matter is, the now defunct “post-hardcore” band Quicksand, which Schreifels also fronted, is one of my favorite bands of all time and I was only able to catch them twice. I’ve yet to see Rival Schools, which I would essentially describe as a more mature, poppier Quicksand and if memory serves (which these days it does occasionally) they are yet to headline Columbus, which is what they are doing Thursday evening at the Basement, on tour for release “Pedals”.

I’ll be the asshole shouting out Quicksand song titles until I’m forcibly dragged out.

Balance and Composure and Hostage Calm open, tickets are $16.00 day of show, doors at 7.

Check out Rival Schools performing the Quicksand cover of The Simths cover “How Soon is Now” after the jump Continue reading
