Chad’s dream come true: Headlights to tour with Mates of State

You don’t know Chad. I do. Chad’s going to be very excited to learn that two of his favorite bands – Headlights and Mates of States – are going to be doing some shows together. He’s not going to be happy that there isn’t a date in Ohio. He may be happy that there is a date in Newport, Kentucky, just a short 120 miles or so from his front door. He’s not going to be happy that it’s on a Tuesday night.

  1. You read my mind. There are only a few bands who would make me consider driving to Kentucky on a Tuesday night and Headlights and Mates of State are two of them. It’s going to be a tough call. I don’t trust my judgement when it comes to shows any more. Remember, I’m the idiot who didn’t go to the Killers concert last year because it was raining.
