Tour Dates updated for January and February.

After a bit of a flu/new job/holidays hiatus, I’m back and the first order of business is updating otherhip-hop.com’s tour calendar. And just in time.

Over the next two months, Atmosphere is all over Minnesota, Grieves and Budo are all over the mid-west (with Gym Class Heroes! And T-Pain!), Rickolus has some east coast dates, Doomtree is all over the whole damn country (and some of Canada too) and Astronautalis and Bleubird have a whole pile of dates across Europe.

2012 is starting off right. Happy New Year!

Love,

OH-H
