Get your Hot Snakes! Step right up and get your Hot Snakes! As long as you live on the West Coast, that is! The members of the post-hardcore band (some of whom were formerly known as Drive Like Jehu and/or Rocket From The Crypt) have reunited to play a handful of shows next month up and down the Western seaboard. Why, that’s more exciting than box full of kittens!
The only other announced date is a slot at Metallica’s Orion Music + More festival in New Jersey in June. That sounds downright dreadful, so if you don’t live on the West Coast, treat yourself to that vacation you’ve been putting off and select from one of the many lovely Left Coast locales where you can get a slice of piping vipers without the bother that is sure to come with a Metallica-helmed outdoor music event. In New Jersey. In June.
Dial the giant rotary phone from the cover of their 2000 album, Automatic Midnight, or the creepily menacing phone from their self-titled 2002 album, and get tickets before it’s too late!
