Crazy-Go-Nuts Tour


Do you like Those Darlins? How about King Khan? No? How about now Australia-expats The Grates? Still no huh? How about Meat Puppets? You hate them? No way. Impossible. Fine then how about Dr. Dog? Ok now we're talking.

The Grates will be co-headlining this craziness of a tour with Those Darlins, featuring performances with all the aforementioned bands. Pure insanity to ensue on this massive set of dates kicking off on Sept. 8. For those not privy to The Grates' backstory, they are huge in Australia, but just relocated to good old Brooklyn and are set to release their sophmore record, Teeth Lost, Hearts Won on September 15 via Thirty Tigers/Dew Process. Traveling coast-to-coast, Those Darlins and The Grates will have their fingers in all sorts of music markets -- dirty.

Check out this massive tour after the jump. You must review closely -- this tour has more footnotes than Fitzgerald's This Side of Paradise (that was for StarkNY, known for pulling Amory Blaine's on weekends.)
