Sometimes the things you question the most in life are instead the things least worthy of consideration. Like, for instance, what have Mountain Goats fans done to deserve the forthcoming Spring tour-leg with Dead Rider? Delving into the state of people's karma and/or the vagaries of the luck of the draw....these are some not worth considering. Instead, it's more fruitful to consider how Dead Rider's show will be reanimated in the big rooms they'll be playing back East in April. That's a delicious image. The power-bolts of Crew Licks should make for a monstrous show, with blistering blues lines and stuttering rock 'n soul beats decking the halls and setting the stage for the 'Goats. Even though Dead Rider just got off a national club tour and even though these dates are a little piece down the road, we're like, SO into thinking about it, as we remember what were confronted with on the "U.S. Licks" tour.

The consummate performers that are Dead Rider were built for multipurpose in this world; these dates will provide them with an entirely different incarnation to inhabit, and a set of compares and contrasts with the formidable nature of the headliners that is sure to shower sparks from the brows of all involved. Great nights ahead! Mountain Goats fans: you belong Dead.
