Screeching Weasel/Riverdales June 19-20 in Austin TX

That's Screeching Weasel on the 19th and the Riverdales on the 20th. I'm pretty sure the Riverdales show is slated for the smaller room so plan accordingly.

I really want to give you the lowdown on the SW re-formation but there's honestly not a lot to say. Legal issues prevented me from doing my own band on my own terms over the past couple of years but thankfully those problems are all resolved now. The kind of stuff happens sometimes. I won't deny that those problems - which were really just the culmination of many years of a lot of other b.s. - left a foul taste in my mouth about SW. But now that all the headaches are behind me I'm feeling great about it. I'm finally running my own band again and I'm really happy and excited to be back at it. I've got a killer line-up comprised of myself, Danny Vapid, Simon Lamb (the Ritalins), Justin Perkins (Yesterday's Kids) and Adam Cargin (Blueheels) (he's also the new Riverdales drummer) and we've got a great set list. And I'm thrilled to be playing in Texas - places like Houston and Austin were always great for Screeching Weasel in our touring days. We are only playing two other shows in 2009 (in the fall - they'll be announced next month) so we'll hope to see you at one of them!

Screeching Weasel and Riverdales tickets both go on sale at 10 a.m. central tomorrow.

Tickets for Screeching Weasel on June 19th

Tickets for the Riverdales on June 20th

The bands are playing on different nights so if you want to see 'em both you'll have to buy tickets for both nights. Additional shows will not be added even if these sell out so if you wanna go, get a move on!
