From the promotional email that was put in my junk email folder:
LA-via-Vermont garage/powerpop wunderkind King Tuff has expanded his previously announced 2012 fall & winter tour. The tour kicks-off tonight, October 11 in Detroit, MI at The Lager House and now ends on December 14 in Los Angeles at the Eagle Rock Center Fore The Arts. Additionally, King Tuff has scheduled three CMJ performances in Brooklyn, NY next week: October 18 at Sub Pop's Octrocktober showcase at the Knitting Factory (at 11:20pm); and two shows October 19, first at the Inland Empire Touring Showcase (at 7pm) and later that evening at Cheap Storage (at 12am).
SPIN included King Tuff in their "25 Must See Acts at CMJ", and said, "As King Tuff, Vermont's Kyle Thomas kicks out gold-toothed garage rock that just might out-hook Ty Segall, or at least incite a more giddy mosh pit. He fronts stoner-metal group Witch, which claims Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis as its drummer, so he's also got chops and cred for days. Abetted by his prized guitar (nicknamed "Jazijoo"), Thomas howls loud and lean about wild desire and bad things" (See Spin.com Oct. 11
