Just to prove that everything in the music industry doesn't suck right now, a tour of ACTUAL
MERIT has been announced. Three acts that are ALL GOOD AND NOT ANNOYING are
touring together, so get your collective asses out there to view them. Critic's favorite Pete
Yorn is hitting the road, with the excellent Remy Zero, who themselves are just
winding down their tour opening for Travis, and a band you have to hear to believe,
the teenage Irish trio JJ72, who mix the quiet/loud dynamic Nirvana with
singer Mark Greaney's incredible vocal range. Check all three of these bands; it may
just rekindle your love for music.
