To support their July 18th Lost Highway release, “Another Fine Day”, Minneapolis alt-country ubbergroup Golden Smog will take to the stage for two shows this summer.
July 23 – First Avanue – Minneapolis
July 26 – Bowery Ballroom – New York
While “Another Fine Day” features contributions from Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Soul Asylum’s Dan Murphy, Big Star’s Jody Stephens and the Jayhawks Gary Louris, Marc Perlman and Kraig Johnson it’s undetermined which artists will show up for the two shows.
The band has been virtually silent since wrapping up a 1998 tou in support of “Wierd Tales”, but last year Louris,Murphy, Perlman and Johnson played a handful of Golden Smog dates (sans Tweedy). Lost Highway states more shows are possible but not confirmed.
Of course the Bowery show sold out before I was able to score tickets! DRATS!
