Matador says:

"The first stanza of North American touring in support of last August's 'Mirror Traffic' skipped a number of the continent's more glittering metropolises, and that's obviously something Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks were eager to correct in early 2012. Plus, they get to visit Boulder, too!"

Tickets are on sale now for a 2/22 show at Mohawk. No openers have been announced for the Austin show, but I wouldn't be surprised if they add OBN IIIs to the bill being that the two bands make up the first two releases of this year's Matador Singles Going Home Alone Subscription Series.
