DC Solo gigs in US, Mar 2008
============================

More details of this upcoming treat, including a date in NYC at the Cutting
Room and in Toronto at Hugh's Room.

I'm hoping to travel over for the first few dates of the tour 5-8 Mar or
possibly 5-9 Mar inclusive - hope to see some of you there. I've heard
from Dave some of the songs he'll be including on this tour - there's a new
one and some really quite old ones and unexpected ones, as well as material
from his new solo album. Very exciting indeed.

It is hoped that there will be a UK warm-up show before Dave leaves for the
States. Details to be confirmed.
