Hard Touring Boy Ben Kweller Gets Some Strokes Dates

Hard-working teen music prodigy Ben Kweller is at it again. The ex-Radish frontman is beating the road, bringing his own personal brand of emo-pop to the kids. He is set to open a short set of dates for The Strokes in the middle of his upcoming tour, which kicks off on Halloween in Plainview, NY and winds up in Providence, RI, on December 7 after winding its way across the heartland. The dates with The Strokes run November 9 - November 17 and hits the wonderful metropolises of Las Vegas, Mesa, Tucson, El Paso, Oklahoma City, Dallas and Austin. So, if you live in one of those cities, I'm sorry, whoops, I mean go see Kweller when he opens for The Strokes.
