Olympia, Washington-based, Arkansas-bred trio The Gossip is leaving the Northwest again for a headlining tour that’ll make punks, blog-readers, and Europeans stoked to be alive. Unlike the band’s recent tour with Cyndi Lauper and Erasure, this jaunt sees the band going back to its roots, taking along Portland-based party-man Panther and The Long Blondes. Not to mention, you can see the band outside of an arena, which rules.
