BLUE RODEO with special guest TIM EASTON
@ The Mint!
"If only most bands aged this well. After more than 20 years, Canadian country-rockers Blue Rodeo have put out their third live album, this time culled from an acoustic night at Toronto’s Massey Hall. It tops most sets by bands a quarter of their age." -Gateway Online
AND Joshua Tree's own TIM EASTON!
Most of you KNOW how we feel about TIM. Expect him to play songs from his forthcoming album PORCUPINE (due out this Spring on New West Records) and be sure to check out his side project EASTON STAGGER PHILLIPS! Unfortunately, ESP had to cancel their West Coast dates due to a climbing injury that Evan Phillips sustained some time ago. We'll see to it that you have info. on more dates as they're re-scheduled.
