While the holiday season is the time to gather with friends and family, the weeks immediately following hold no such rules. Billy The Kid, lead singer of punk band Billy and the Lost Boys, and Malcolm Bauld, vocalist for Montreal trio The Frenetics, are breaking free of their bands and embarking on a tour, just the two of them.
The pair will hit 10 cities in the New Year, with all of them lying in the land west of Ontario. Kicking off on January 15th in Calgary, Alberta, Billy and Bauld will head right into the next month, playing their final date on February 1st in Calgary - after making a circuit to the coast. Besides Alberta and British Columbia, the two singers will also visit the provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
When she's with her band the Lost Boys, Billy The Kid is responsible for providing the vocals for some rip-roaring punk music. The last record that the Vancouver trio released was the longwinded titled 'Breaking Down The Barriers That Breakdown Your Music'; the 15-track album was released in September 2004.
When he's with his band The Frenetics, Bauld is responsible for providing the vocals for guitar-laden indie rock music. Together since 1999, The Frenetics have released two full-length albums. Their debut 'These Mistakes Took Years of Practice' was dropped in 2001, and the follow-up 'Grey Veins to the Parking Lot' was released in 2004.
