The exclusivity of Dean Wareham‘s two shows at Hemlock Tavern next Friday is no mystery. Set to perform Galaxie 500 material for the lucky attendees, the term “rare event” doesn’t quite do the night justice. The phrase now lends to an underlying theme however, as Tortured Genies have been announced as support for both the 7:30pm and 10:30pm shows (Ed. note: the early show is now sold-out.) Comprised of members of Sonny & The Sunsets and a rotating cast of special guests (including Sonny Smith himself), the Genies surface just infrequently enough for the word “rare” to remain reasonable. Grab your tickets now!
