GREG GINN AND THE ROYAL WE SUMMER TOUR
June 11th, 2012, Austin, Tex. -- Greg Ginn and The Royal We, Ginn's solo electro-instrumental project, has booked a summer tour.
Greg Ginn and The Royal We's debut album, We Are Amused, was released on SST in November and was hilariously described by Rolling Stone as "Black Sabbath scoring a Godzilla movie." Ginn plays guitar, bass, theramin and synthesizer on the release with a host of effects to create the lush and loosely psychedelic release. Live, Ginn utilizes a Mac combined with a wall of amp racks and speakers to create the powerful sound.
Earlier this year, Greg Ginn and The Royal We went on a West Coast tour preceding two performances at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
Greg Ginn and the Royal We tour dates: June 15 San Luis Obispo, CA The Z June 16 Fresno, CA Fulton 55 June 18 San Diego, CA Eleven June 26 Denver, CO Bar Bar June 27 Lincoln, NE Cultiva June 29 Columbia, MO Mojo's June 30 Indianapolis, IN Radio Radio July 1 Chicago, IL The Red Line Tap July 4 Akron, OH Annabell's July 5 Youngstown, OH The Lemon Grove Cafe July 6 Athens, OH Jackie O's July 18 Cambridge, MA Plough and Stars July 19 Northampton, MA The Elevens July 29 New York, NY Iridium July 30 New York, NY Iridium (with Les Paul Trio) August 2 Louisville, KY Haymarket Whiskey Bar Also recently released on SST Records:
Mojack's Hijinks - Hijinks is the fifth CD from the instrumental group Mojack. Tony Atherton (sax) and Greg Ginn (guitar/bass) are joined this time around by the amazing drummer Khalil Hebert. The result is a kinetic combination of driving grooves and guitar/sax interplay.
Playing in my town, but I dont know if I really give a crap. Greg Ginn could be playing xylophone or lighting his farts and a hundred people would show up. Funny how that happens... punk rock O.G.s become the very thing they railed against in the 80s: dinosaurs who draw rabid crowds on the virtue of name alone, coasting along on their long gone glory days, about as threatening as an elderly golden retriever.
Don't tell Greg I said that. Motherfucker will have me killed.
