In what may be the most 90's tour of the year, Polaris will tour the country performing 9 shows in a month long span starting April 16th in Boston and concluding May 16th in Philadelphia.
Put together for the sole purpose of creating the soundtrack for “The Adventures of Pete & Pete”, Polaris have become cult icons on nearly the same level as the beloved 1990's Nickelodeon saga. Whether it was “Hey Sandy” in the show's iconic opening, or Little Pete struggling for months to find the garage band that penned “Summerbaby”, Polaris were an integral part of the shows nostalgia and charm.
The tour comes in celebration of the reissue of the show's soundtrack “Music From The Adventures of Pete & Pete” on LP on April 18th. The tour starts on the 16th at Brighton Music Hall in Boston then quickly jumps to the west coast with dates in Spokane, Seattle, and Portland. California is next with San Francisco's Chapel and LA's Echoplex on April 25th.
The band will take a break before 3 east coast shows, closest to the fictional Wellsville. The Eastern portion consists of May 9th in Connecticut, May 15th at New York's Highline Ballroom, and May 16th at Philadelphia's Underground Arts. General admission tickets are $20.
Danny Tamberelli, aka “Little Pete” has fronted a band of his own called Jounce, in the New York City area for a number of years and we for one think it'd only be fitting if they got the opening slot for the East Coast swing. If Pete and Artie could keep summer alive by beating up the ocean, we can dream too.
