Cass McCombs announces co-headlining tour with Meat Puppets, while a cassette tape melts in the back of my parents' car

In the summer of 2010, the only music I had in my car was a handful of cassette tapes, including Meat Puppets’ II and a mixtape my friend made me that was labeled John Mayer/More John Mayer and contained no John Mayer. In 2010, Cass McCombs was in between his albums Catacombs and Wit’s End, neither of which came out on cassette. Now here we are in 2014 and these two unrelated factors have now become… related. Here is how: Cass McCombs is going on tour with the Meat Puppets this October. The two have become still two but a closer two and the past edges closer to the future.

In other cases, the future just meets more future. McCombs, who most recently released Big Wheel and Others on Domino last year, will spend the pre-Meat Puppets portion of October touring with The War on Drugs. For personal detail, I have never had a cassette of a War on Drugs album, nor am I sure that such a thing even exists. That said, I did have a Tom Petty cassette, so same thing, you know?
