Rancid & Transplants On Tour Together

Rancid news – not so great when it comes to the contents of your fridge, but it’s an appetizing idea if you’re looking for a good punk rock show to attend this spring. Fortunately, especially because it’s close to lunchtime over at ye olde Pollstar office, we’re talking about the latter.

Tim Armstrong will get a lot of stage time on this tour. Not only do you get nearly a dozen gigs with Rancid, but the tour features Transplants, Armstrong’s group with rapper Rob Aston and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker.
