The Smithereens touring U.S. this summer

The Smithereens — who released the aptly titled 2011, their first collection of new material in more than a decade, last year — will keep busy this on the road summer, criss-crossing the U.S. to play at least 15 concerts between June and September at a variety of clubs, theaters and a number of small-town festivals

The band — featuring original members Pat DiNizio, Jim Babjak and Dennis Diken, plus bassist Severo Jornacion, who replaced Mike Mesaros in 2006 — opens the run of dates this Saturday in Chester, Md., and will play throughout the summer, winding up the currently announced series of shows on Sept. 29 in Virginia Beach.

  1. Pat DiNizio is a CRAZY wingnut now. He makes my grandfather seem open-minded.

  2. Glad to see them touring again, their recent release was outstanding. It is a bit shocking how big Pat has gotten though!

  3. You could move in.
