Show Announcements: Leg Sweeper, House Of Pain, Civil Wars, The Gourds, The Sword, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark, Steve Miller Band, Sister Hazel & Edwin McCain, Trashcan Sinatras & More!

Secret shows are the stuff of legend.

There was a certain Prince secret show at the Red Jacket in 2002, and the Old 97's occasionally perform under the name Rhomin' Hitchhikers.

Now, it looks like  Leg Sweeper, with the help of Parade of Flesh and Gorilla Groove, is jumping on the secret show bandwagon with a secret tour kickoff show on Tuesday, January 18.

Here's the catch: They're keeping the location a secret -- Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist style. But Leg Sweeper is taking it up a notch, too: There are reports that there will be free beer at the show. Stay tuned for more info on this mysterious concert.

In other show announcements news, House Of Pain's original lineup will be performing at Trees on Tuesday, March 23. So if you're kicking yourself for never seeing the band perform "Jump Around" live, now's your chance.

More show announcements after the jump.
