RTX, a.k.a. post-Royal Trux Jennifer Herrema + band + gnarly, bangs-down-to-there surfer shag, are hitting the road for the month of September with a slew of dates up and down the West Coast. The tour features support from the nattily-kempt ‘dos of the ladies and gentleman in Nashville’s Heavy Cream and includes dates with blond moppet Ty Segall and Kurt Vile’s sensual brunette mane.
Long, lustrous nights of old-school garage-punk rocking will leave your own follicles smelling like smoke, sweat, and good memories. Lather, rinse, repeat. Or don’t. Whatever, man!
In other news, Drag City has announced a new RTX album slated to drop in early 2012. Siiiiiiick.
