On Friday afternoon, clubs editor Daniel Hopkins played a fun game called How Many Promoters Does It Take To Confirm An At The Drive-In Show, and I believe the tally was three by day's end. As the weekend progressed, social media confirmed that the El Paso band's whereabouts on Tuesday night, especially after the confirmed Austin show tonight, weren't really a secret anymore. We in Dallas aren't real good at keeping them anyway.
Tactics Productions and Austin's Transmission Entertainment have teamed up to bring the reunited five-piece to Trees tomorrow night, as a ramp-up to their Coachella dates. That rumbling sound you hear is half the town trying to buy tickets as you read this, so get them while you can.
