Sure, the Foxboro Hot Tubs sound like Green Day. In fact, there’s more than just a “passing resemblance” to the band from Berkeley, California. But (we’ll play along with the gag), the band’s official lineup consists of The Reverend Strychnine Twitch, Michael Pritchard, Frank Edwin Wright III, Jason White and Jason Freeze. And they have dates. Like May 19 in Little Rock; May 20 in New Orleans; May 21 in Dallas and May 22 in Austin. Other stops include Phoenix, San Diego, Long Beach and West Hollywood. Watch for a special item on Foxboro Hot Tubs coming up as soon as we dot all the “t”s and cross all the “I”s.

Tilly and the Wall takes it to the clubs in July and August. New dates include San Francisco on July 8 at the Great American Music Hall; Phoenix on July 12 at Modified; Boston on July 31 at Paradise Rock Club and Toronto on August 2 at The Mod Club.

We have three new ones for you from Boston. Catch Tom Scholz & Company in Mahnomen, MN, at Shooting Star Casino; July 27 in Elizabeth, IN, at Boston at Caesars Indiana and July 30 in Rama, ON, at the Casino Rama Entertainment Centre.

Finally, the Young Dubliners update this morning with a three-fer in Charlotte, NC (August 7 – 9). Other new stops include Billings, MT, on August 22 and a three-fer in Indianapolis (September 19 – 21).

During the first 90 minutes of biz we also updated the schedules for Tinsley Ellis, Vicente Fernandez, Ramblin Jug Stompers, Sarah Silverman, Sin Bandera, Slightly Stoopid, Stampeders, G. Love & Special Sauce, Emmanuel, Gilby Clarke, Billy Ocean, Ambrosia, Alasdair Fraser and Bob Weir & Ratdog.

And that’s the story so far. Don’t even think of missing your Midday Update, scheduled for around 12 noon (PDT), from!
