Listen up, Palookas! Jookabox to tour Midwest and East Coast this May, see?

Mothers, lock up your daughters. After bumming around Europe and this year’s SXSW, everyone’s favorite, um, old-timey-hip-hop crew (?) Jookabox is gearing up for one more foxtrot around the Midwest and East Coast of the US later this spring. Indianapolis native David Adamson (a.k.a. Grampall Jookabox) and co. are apparently giving last year’s pop-rock/hip-hop cornucopia Dead Zone Boys (TMT Review) on Asthmatic Kitty a victory lap or two before heading back into the studio to prep a follow-up. If you like trippy, glitzy, tribal soul songs about zombies and ghosts, then this is good news for you. If you like trippy, glitzy, tribal soul songs about more existential matters, then you’ve got the wrong classroom (you want that TV on the Radio course down the hall in room 204).

But hey, you know what? Never mind all of these ungrateful little snot-nosed indie rock bands with extra letters and punctuation marks in their names. Let’s talk about US for a second. Check out a remix of a tune from Dead Zone Boys over at our exclusive HD, HQ, On-Demand, Pulitzer-nominated Chocolate Grinder. And remember that you heard it here first on Tiny Mix Tapes. That’s T-I-N-Y-M-I-X-T-A-P-E-S. Now available online! Tell your friends.
