Ted Leo/Rx: New Songs & Tour

Image hosting by Photobucket

It looks like Ted Leo/Rx is about to hit the road this March for a tour with Les Aus and The Duke Spirit. On top of that, Ted can now be found on Touch & Go and he has two new songs on his website, and all debate on his label issues aside, Touch & Go is the best place for him right now, as they have impeccable artists and a great history, something which he only adds to.

In your Ted Leo travels, don't forget to visit Timorous Me, a fan site which I had a hand in creating, but is now run by T.J., my old buddy from my WCUR days. The information there is stacked: tons of live shows, tabs, lyrics, pictures and a vibrant message board. If you haven't signed up yet, definitely stop by and do so now! Check Ted's dates below.

Bad news though is that The Duke Spirit are caught up with some visa issues, and will not be joining the tour until the Rochester show, which completely fucking sucks because I will not be able to see them in Boston, so hopefully things will be ok for their SXSW shows.
