Runnin' With The Devil: EAR FARM hits the road again in March

Last year I took to the road for five weeks on an immense tour with the band Goes Cube to shoot footage for a documentary about the experiences of an indie-rock band on their first cross-country tour. The documentary is moving along, as is the band. In fact, Goes Cube is currently lining up dates for another big tour on their way down to Austin for South by Southwest and is looking for shows on the way to, and back from, Texas. Get in touch with them if you'd to help find them a show in your town.

One of our collective favorites for on-the-road listening humor was the Smash Mouth "Days Like These" vocal outtake originally posted on the Grizzly Bear blog. If you haven't heard it before, listen now. It's awfully funny. Awful AND funny.

The reason I bring up last year's tour is that EAR FARM is going to go on a tour of our own: we're headed down to Austin in March for SxSW. Two weeks of driving, concerts, writing, and barbecue. We'll be sure to stop in the four BBQ meccas (North Carolina, Texas, Memphis, and Kansas City) during our trip and will do our best to see as many live shows on the road as we can. To this end, if you're in a band that will be playing in/around/near one of the cities we're going to on our March '08 tour, please get in touch and let us know about your show. Also, feel free to get in touch with us if you have any suggestions for eats or live music or things to do/see in any of the cities listed below.

Tentatively, our live music/city-stop schedule looks like this:

7 March - Van Halen in Raleigh, NC
8 March - Man Man in Athens, GA
9 March - The Walkmen/Vampire Weekend in Atlanta, GA
10 March - TBD in Memphis, TN
11 March - Goes Cube in Dallas, TX
12-16 March - SXSW in Austin, TX
17 March - Built To Spill/Meat Puppets/Helvetia in Kansas City, MO
18 March - TBD in TBD
19 March - TBD in TBD
20 March - TBD in TBD
To say that we're excited about kicking off our tour by seeing Van Halen in Raleigh would be an understatement. March looks to be one hell of a month for EAR FARM and our readers.

To celebrate - what? you thought I'd end this without an accompanying MP3 or two? pssh - we've located what is sure to be this tour's "Days Like These". Okay, it's not nearly as horrible/humorous, but is amusing no less. Found on Chunklet, it's a studio outtake of David Lee Roth singing "Runnin' With The Devil" - vocals only. Enjoy.

Listen:
"Runnin' With The Devil" (vocals only outtake) by David Lee Roth
"Runnin' With The Devil" by Van Halen

Don't know if this date/location works out for you geography-wise, but I would recommend hitting this show at the Star Bar in Atlanta, GA on 3/19:

Spottiswoode & His Enemies
Hymns
Teenage Prayers

Also, while there you should check out Fat Matt's Rib Shack. That's some damn fine 'Q!
