Jay Arner Heads Out on North American Tour

Jay Arner Heads Out on North American Tour
Vancouver acts and Mint Records labelmates Jay Arner and Tough Age will strengthen their bonds even further this spring by teaming up for a handful of tour dates next month.

Arner will team up with Tough Age for a show at Vancouver's Heaven venue on March 1 before he and the rest of his new wave-loving band make their way down through the Pacific Northwest and into California. Eventually they will head over to Austin's SXSW and then get together with the garage rock-leaning Tough Age for shows New Mexico, Arizona and Nevada.

You'll find all Arner's tour info detailed down below in text, as well as in a new goofy trailer for the trip. In it, you'll find Arner describing the many pluses of the touring life in a voice that clearly isn't his own.
