Bringing it back to the days of Maximum Rock n’ Roll style DIY, yet keeping it current with today’s (Rupert Murdoch-owned) technology, our good friends at Fenway Recordings have just shared the following amazing news regarding Mission of Burma’s engagement at Eugene, Oregon’s WOW Hall on Sunday, September 17 with 50 Foot Wave:
Mission of Burma recieved a message on Myspace a couple of weeks ago from a high school band called The Tunnel Kings. They stated that they were huge fans and would like to open for them for the 17th of Sept in their home town; Eugene, OR.
Roger Miller checked them out and liked what he heard. As of yesterday- the Tunnel Kings are confirmed. Here is the original email from The Tunnel Kings:
My name is River Donaghey and my band, The Tunnel Kings (above), and I are huge fans. We’re all sophmores in high school in Eugene, OR and we just noticed that you are heading down here for a show at the WOW Hall on September 17th. If there is any way you guys might consider letting us open for you, it would be a amazing opporitunity for the band. So go listen to our stuff and if you like what you hear throw me a message back.
The Tunnel Kings’ Myspace site is at the following URL: www.myspace.com/thetunnelkings. Congratulations to River and his crew for taking the initiative!
