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.
