Live Nation has announced that legendary Vancouver band the Smugglers is reuniting to play its first hometown show in over 13 years at the Commodore Ballroom on Saturday, May 13.
The reason for the reunion gig is simple: lead singer, author and broadcaster Grant Lawrence is finally releasing his memoirs of his hard-charging, international touring years, entitled Dirty Windshields: the best and the worst of the Smugglers tour diaries (Douglas and McIntyre, May 2017).
The Smugglers will be joined by guests The Muffs, Chixdiggit, and Needles//Pins.
The Georgia Straight is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year by highlighting 50 recommended events. Be sure to follow along with #Straight50.
Tickets for the 19+ show are $25 (plus service charges and fees), and go on sale Friday, February 24, at 10 a.m. on the Live Nation website.
