Italy based band CRTVTR to swarm US on tour (Starts May 23 in Minneapolis)

I have been following the musical exploits of Italian base indie rock band CRTVTR since their We Need Time ep release in 2009. Cesare Pezzoni (guitar vocals), Fabio Patrone (bass), and Giovanni Stimamiglio on drums comprise CRTVTR. Their newest release,  Here it comes, Tramontane!  made it into my TOP TEN most listened to albums last year. I did a review of the album HERE . They have a song on there that they recorded that has Mike Watt, yes that Mike Watt, on bass. They play a brand of indie rock fueled by 90's eclectic indie guitar music. I can't wait for them to come play Quenchers on May 31 , I will be there, come on out Chicago people. It's not too often that bands I follow abroad end up touring and I am excited to see them play! Please go support this Italian band as they tour a good deal of the midwest. Here are the dates, and you can buy tix HERE
