We had to look twice when we received the email. Spooky Tooth? With Gary Wright? But there it was in black and white (only Pollstar managing execs get color monitors), the band that’s the answer to the trivia question “Who did Gary Wright play with before he released “Dreamweaver?” has a February tour of Europe. But Gary is not the only original member. Mike Harrison and Mike Kellie are also traveling under the ST moniker.

We’ve got a lovely bunch of dates for Les Claypool. Dates like February 29 in Charlotte, NC, and April 4 in Los Angeles. All in all we posted 16 new Les dates. Other stops include San Francisco, Dallas, Milwaukee and Chicago.

The Dreaming fills up its March dance card with several new shows, including stops in Atlanta, Houston, Sioux City and Pittsburgh; Hal Ketchum adds dates on both sides of the pond for March and April; Kelly Willis adds an April Annapolis gig and Tab Benoit updates with new shows for Portland, Seattle and Tacoma.

During the past couple of hours we also updated the schedules for The Boxing Lesson, Slightly Stoopid, Rusty Evans, Rehab, Richard Buckner, Rhino Bucket, Rascal Flatts, Lorene Drive, Lyle Lovett, Gram Rabbit, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, John Hiatt, New Riders Of The Purple Sage, The Why Store, Trace Adkins and VAST.

And we’ve rounded the track and are now heading down that final stretch. A couple of hours before quittin’ time and we have a gazillion dates yet to post before we can claim our customary bar stool and buffalo wings down at the Corn Squeezins Tavern and Laundromat. Check out the latest in tour information in The Closing Bell, coming up around 5 pm (PST) from Pollstar.com!
