Sean Carlson and erstwhile Circle Jerks member Keith Morris have been throwing their F*%! Yeah Fest in various locations around Los Angeles for the last four years, waiting for the day the music/comedy/art event can visit other parts of the country. This year, with the help of 26 people and a '92 Bluebird bus apparently run on vegetable oil, they'll see that goal realized with the F Yeah Tour 08.
Matt & Kim, Dillinger Four, The Death Set, Monotonix, Crystal Antlers, Dan Deacon, Paint it Black, Team Robespierre, Brother Reade, Japanther, and more are set to play 28 shows in 27 days, the first of which is in Baltimore tonight. Comedians Nick Flanagan, Josh Fadem, and Hannibal Buress will also be on the bus, along with artwork from Philadelphia's Space 1026.
Unfortunately, Carlson, Morris, and crew are sticking mostly to the eastern side of the Mississippi for the tour, so those of us beyond the Rockies will have to wait until August 30 and 31, when the festival makes its usual L.A. appearance.
