The summer affair between the two bands will start in the South East in Charlottesville, VA at the Charlottesville Amphitheatre on Wednesday June 27. The D.U.M.B posse will continue on to Portsmouth, VA at the Ntelos Wireless Pavilion on Thursday June 28, The Lincoln Theatre Street Stage in Raleigh, NC on Friday June 29, and the Masquerade Music Park in Atlanta, GA on Saturday June 30. Although playing equal sets at each show, the bands will take turns each night on who will close the show. In order to figure out who will close the last show on Sunday July 1 at the Pompano Beach Amphitheatre in Pompano Beach, FL, there will be a pre-show poker game between members of each band on stage at the four preceding shows. The winner of this poker game will play the closing set in Pompano. So make sure to get to the shows early to catch the poker madness!
