    I just saw this. Ends in time for Coachella with no California date. Just some more things to look at before the line-up is announced soon.

    They're pretty much always touring. They've been out all fall/winter. I don't know, people don't seem to "get" them out here. Personally, I'd love it.

    Damn it, they never come to Phoenix. Only Tucson, and I always miss them.

    Wouldn't surprise me if they are there not my kind of music but I watched them at some festival 2 years ago and they were fun live

    I'd love to see them do a tour of nothing but their Dunkin Donuts jingles. (Those might only run up here in NE). "Freezing at Pee-Wee Hockey" "Fritalian", the works! It'd be like a live version of Fingertips... 45 minutes, 90 songs.

    This is the first I've heard of this... I don't think they run out in Arizona.

    I've got an "official bootleg" for a show where they actually do Fingertips live.

    They don't get enough credit. I stopped listening to them around '95. Then I saw that documentary about them a few years back and realized I was missing their best stuff. They still can't put together a cohesive album- you wind up skipping every other track, but they've done some genius stuff in the last 12 years. "Destination Moon" and "End Of The Tour" are two of the saddest songs ever if you really listen to them.

    It must be a New England thing. TMBG have been doing Dunkin Donuts jingles forever. There was an evil, evil blip this year when they were replaced by Rachel Ray, but now theyre back to doing TMBG again.

    Nice...they definitely don't run those here.

    I love how they are they are total sellouts and no one cares, because they are so "indie" on the other side. I've heard John L. can write a jingle like that in an hour or two. He spends a couple afternoons in the studio, and BAM, they can afford to tour another couple months.

    I highly recommend that documentary, "Gigantic", even if you don't like them.
