I love the buzz before SXSW.
The Stooges are booking a full spring reunion tour including a March 17th date at SXSW. They will first master their new album, recorded with Steve Albini at the helm. Mike Watt is on bass, and Brendan Benson even did some vocals on "Free and Freaky." They're also playing All Tomorrow's Parties with Sonic Youth, Deerhoof, Dinosaur Jr, Sunburned Hand of the Man, Wolf Eyes, Melvins, Blood Stereo, Jackie-O Motherf*^%er and more. This is the December 8,9,10th installment of ATP. More Stooges details here.
