Ask the dust if we can go to Chicago…

Our good pals over at Too Poppy poured a little bit of salt in the wound to remind us that alt-rockers Dada (er, dada) are headed to this side of the world for a rare set of tour dates as they wrap up work on their upcoming sixth studio album (!!!).

One of those shows is in Chicago on December 30th at Schubas.  And it will be awesome.  No really, it's going to be really, really awesome.  Chicago and Dada have a longtime mutual love affair with each other that remains in effect to this day. The Chicago shows are always something to talk about and even better to witness in person.

Cleveland used to be a normal stop for the Dada boys, but it's been a few years, probably due to a miserably attended show at the Cleveland Agora that was announced only a couple of weeks before it happened.  Cleveland audiences were always kind to the Dada boys (at least with proper notice), so perhaps we'll get another chance one of these days.

Until that happens, put the words "road trip" into your mental GPS and check out the trio of upcoming Dada-riffic shows to see if any of them fit with your rock and roll day planner. God knows, I'm trying to make the Chi-town date fit with mine!

And about that new album?  We're plenty stoked for that one and it gives us something (hopefully) to look forward to in 2011.
