Reggie (& The Western Civilization) Goes To War, I Mean, On Tour -- Tomorrow @ Walter's [3/27/2008 01:32:00 PM]:
Sorry, couldn't resist the song reference... I know I've been somewhat quiet lately on local fave band The Western Civilization
(since we ran the interview
last spring, actually, although they did appear in our best-of-2007 wrap-up
), and frankly, that's pretty inexcusable. My only defense is that they've been somewhat quiet themselves lately, since coming back from their last tour.
And now, seemingly unsatisfied with just one go-round of this great nation, the band's headed back out on the road, starting with their tour kickoff show tomorrow night, Fri., March 28th, up at Walter's on Washington. 8PM start, supposedly, and it's $7 for the of-age and $10 for the not.
Also on the bill are fine local bands listenlisten, whom we also interviewed not long ago, and Motion Turns It On, who pretty much took the award for Local Band Everybody Loved in the 2007 top ten lists I saw around town (including ours); seriously, they showed up on like five different lists that I saw. Good people, all.
Those Western Civ kids put on a heck of a show, truly, and seeing as this may be the last time you'll be able to catch 'em locally for a while, well, you'd better get on out, eh? After this they're apparently headed east to Louisiana, Alabama, and Georgia, and then on up the coast through the Carolinas & all those eastern states to New York. On the "return" leg, they're coming back via Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, etc., before heading southward towards Texas once again (check their Myspace, linked above, for the exact dates/venues).
It looks to be a pretty intense, high-speed tour, so go see 'em before they come home all exhausted & ready to sleep for the next three months straight. Hrm. I think I need to go listen to Letters of Resignation on the ol' iPod once again...
