Midwesterners: Have you looked around lately wondering why it seems a little sunnier and warmer in your neck of the woods after weeks of being blasted by snow and sub-zero temperatures? One possible reason is that Southern-California quintet The Little Ones have decided to donate some of that Pacific-Coast sun and good vibrations to the rest of the country as they embark on a 17-date tour.
Beginning tonight in Phoenix at Modified Arts, the band will continue east next week, hitting middle-western states like Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan and so on through early March. And, from what we hear, those places can use all the warm dreams they can get.
For all dates from Feb. 18 on, The Little Ones will be opening for singer/songwriter and fellow-Californian Brett Dennen.
