While you might hesitate to call it an actual tour, the The Lawrence Arms have parlayed their Chicago show into something that could be described as tour-like or at least tour adjacent. The band has four dates in January in such cities as St. Louis, Pontiac, MI and Cleveland. We'll keep you posted if more dates are added.
Brendan Kelly had somethings to add about the shows:
In 2011, [we] only played two shows, once with the mighty Dead Milkmen and once out in SF for the Asian Man spectacular. It was, all things considered, a pretty slow year. Now, in the opening moments of 2012, in honor of the apocalypse, we're gonna go ahead and straight up DOUBLE our entire last year's worth of playing out in January alone. That's right! We were talking and we realized that we haven't played Detroit since the day Oh! Calcutta! came out (which was 2006, for fucks sake!) We haven't played Cleveland or St. Louis since the fall of that same year, and we couldn't very well play around the midwest without doing a hometown show
