Colin Meloy Doesn't Like Middle America

Earlier this year Colin Meloy of the Decemberists went out on a solo tour and released an EP of Morriseey covers coveted by all those who didn't get one and bought for ridiculous amounts of money on eBay. Well he's doing it again in early 2006, when he makes a jaunt across the US coasts, ignoring middle Americs again. It's okay, we're getting used to the feeling. Tour support will be provided by Laura Veirs (whose latest album Year of the Meteors is being released on vinyl by Kill Rock Stars, incidentally)

1/18 - Seattle, WA @ Showbox
1/19 - Portland, OR @ Aladdin Theater
1/20 - San Francisco, CA @ Great American Music Hall
1/21 - Los Angeles, CA @ El Rey Theater
1/23 - Chicago, IL @ Park West
1/25 - Boston, MA @ Paradise Rock Club
1/26 - New York, NY @ Town Hall
1/27 - Philadelphia, PA @ Theatre of Living Arts
1/28 - Alexandria, VA @ Birchmere

Start speculating: will Meloy do another tour-only EP of covers? I sure hope so. An EP of Robyn Hitchcock covers doesn't seem far-fetched.

Colin needs to lay off the Oreos too. What's up with that?
