The Vaselines are going on a US tour, but sorry, it'll probably be over by the end of this headline

Three dates, three paragraphs, three sentences. That’s the slopped-together concept for this very news story. Let’s see how it goes.

Twee-pop legends The Vaselines are going on tour in the United States this fall. If you’re hoping to see them, you had better live near three very specific cities, because they are only playing in those three very specific cities. So, Vaselines fans, let’s hope you live in the vicinity of Brooklyn, San Francisco, or Seattle.

Last time we heard from The Vaselines, they were putting out their 2010 reunion album, Sex with an X (TMT Review), which also happened to be their first record in over 20 years. That record was released by Sub Pop, who also put out their complete discography collection The Way of the Vaselines way back in 1992. I was five years old in 1992, so you guys are very old and, yes, I am just trying to fill this third sentence, fine, you got me, are you happy, probably not.

Vaselines dates:

08.30.12 - Brooklyn, NY - The Bell House
08.31.12 - San Francisco, CA - The Independent
