A Guy Named Guy and Poor Jeremy Embark on the “Mega Miniest” of Tours

Poor Jeremy | A Guy Named Guy | Boston Ska Bands | TourLet’s get one thing out of the way: It is really hard to tour as a band playing any flavor of ska. The national hype has died down, the economy sucks, and all of this is exacerbated by having more than 5 people in a band. The more people, the more complicated it becomes to take time off from work or school, fit people into vehicles, fit instruments into trunks, and generally trek from point A to point B.

This is why we’re all the more excited when they DO decide to go on tour, even for short stints. Boston ska-punk bands A Guy Named Guy and Poor Jeremy have put together a few dates for “A Tour We Drink For” this February, calling it the “mega miniest” of tours. Sure it’s only four dates, but that’s four more dates than your crappy band is playing.
