NO NEED TO SMUGGLE IN THE GOOD TIMES
Book Launch for Grant Lawrence's Dirty Windshields > JUNE 16
Legendary Canadian band The Smugglers are reuniting for a Toronto show to launch lead singer, author, and broadcaster Grant Lawrence's new music memoir, Dirty Windshields: The Best and the Worst of The Smugglers Tour Diaries. The Smugglers will play live at the Horseshoe Tavern with openers Duotang, Needles // Pins, and The New Enchanters.
The show doubles as a book launch, and Type Books will be there with copies of Dirty Windshields. As Will Ferguson has said, "Dirty Windshields should come with a disclaimer: ‘WARNING: may induce feelings of wanderlust and the itching desire to throw a guitar case into a van and hit the road." More importantly, Nardwuar the Human Serviette has called it "pure teenage rawk angst."
