River City ~ Dispatches from Austin

Tuesday, June 18, 2002

It just came across the wire - okay, our wire runs a little slow sometimes:

UNLIMITED SUNSHINE TOUR 2002 -- including The Flaming Lips, De La Soul, Modest Mouse, Cake, Kinky, and The Hackensaw Boys, will be touring the U.S. this summer (from the Cake web site.)
Oh, my. Our knees get weak at the thought. As Elvis said, "it's hard to breathe, and my chest is a-heavin'.." We're no experts on the musical stylings of Kinky or the Hackensaw Boys. But a bill that leads with the Flaming Lips, Modest Mouse, De La Soul and Cake is exactly what this summer needs, and exactly what River City needs to cover on location, in person.

Get your tickets now, becauseā€¦ wait, what's that you say? The Unlimited Sunshine Tour 2002 isn't going anywhere near Texas? Curses! The tour logs some serious time in the Midwest, and the closest it gets to Austin is probably Kansas City. Road trip, anyone? The thought brings us to our in-depth focus for this week - Good Drivin' Music. Tune in to our inside section, River City News: In Too Deep for this amazing scientific study.
