The Hives Rock First Ave In Late February, Announce More US Tour Dates

If The Hives are law, and you are crime, then you'll have multiple opportunities to get arrested, should the band be in law enforcement mood during their live shows. Still touring behind last fall's The Black And White Album, the band has announced several dates, including one in Minneapolis at First Avenue on February 28th.

Opening will be The Donnas, who are still going strong behind their last release, Bitchin', which was also released last fall.

Besides definite articles, both The Hives and The Donnas have larger-than-life-bordering-on-tongue-in-cheek rock sounds which are gloriously indebted to great bands of the past. Similarly, both bands have their backs against the record industry wall, with The Hives putting out their first record since the commercially underwhelming Tyrannosaurus Hives, and The Donnas showcasing Bitchin' as the first release on their own label. Hopefully, these groups will combine their efforts and produce a glorious evening of fist-pumping anthems and unabashed enthusiasm.
