Blues Control go on tour, effectively control 80% of the nation's blues

I CONTROL THE BLUES. Just joshing with you. But don’t you imagine the members of Blues Control say that every morning? If they don’t, they really should. Anyway, here at the Tape, we’ve got a big old crush on Blues Control. Go down memory lane (i.e. read some old reviews and year-end lists) and you’ll see us making some serious moony eyes at Blues Control. As such, any announcement of tourdates from the duo should invoke frenzy in at least three members of the Tiny Mix Tapes staff. CUE THE FRENZY.

Over the next few months, Blues Control are going on a pretty serious tour. They’ll start off in Brooklyn, but by the middle of March, they’ll be in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Sure, those two locales are only 11 hours away, but they’re taking the scenic route. You know, the scenic route! The one where you go through Texas and California and even head into Canada for a while. Trust me, the scenery’s great that way.
