Awesome! I'd be slightly more excited if they didn't play here with TBR last April already, but I'll be there for sure.

I've seen them twice in Canada. The first time in Quebec City where they opened with The Decline, and then in Dartmouth which was also fun. I might have to see them again.

Nofx is big enough to fill metropolis two nights in a row with no name bands? I think I might go.

The email I got from their PR person doesn't say, but I assume it will be fairly soon. At least according to the Ticketmaster site.

I was just about to post something along those lines, haha. NOFX and Teenage Bottlerocket have toured extensively together over the past two years. I wonder what the logic is behind that. Do they just enjoy partying together on tour? Is Fat trying to push them harder? Are Cobra Skulls too busy?

I know Fat Mike likes to take his own bands out on the road. But TBR seems to get the brunt of the action on that front.
