Did I just find something more awesome than the above picture?*
R.E.M. is set to tour the nation with Modest Mouse and The National following the release of their latest effort, Accelerate. Having seen The National once and R.E.M. twice, I can say that you definitely don't want to miss this show.
And now for the downside: There's no MPLS date. But there is one in Chicago (so a certain esteemed colleague at this blog has no excuse – not even money – not to see this show). Tour dates are below.
