Mission of Burma does those shows where the band plays their full album live

It's no longer a new concept, but it's still a pretty damn bitchin' one when it's a band that you like. And in this case, clearly it is otherwise I wouldn't be posting about it. Boston post-punk outfit Mission of Burma is doing the "playing the full album live" thing at some assorted dates around the world, kicking out the jams from the classic Vs. album and the Signals, Calls, and Marches EP. That's right, you, yes you! can experience the sheer, kinda nihilistic pleasure of hearing "That's When I Reach For My Revolver" live and in person!!! Well, mostly you can experience it if you live in Spain, but also definitely in some other places too.
