Remember Travis? Did you lie when you were 17? Do you think things that are not Scottish are crap? You're in luck, as usual. Here's Timothy C. Davis from our Critics' Picks
Probably known best by the huddled masses of America for the hit single "Why Does It Always Rain On Me?", Britpop act Travis hasn't so much as sniffed the Yank charts in ages--which is no wonder, really. We who like our beer cold always make sure that debut records from English pop acts go platinum...and after that, things get dicey. To spice things up a bit, Mssrs. Healy and Dunlop are taking a Kerouac-inspired tour/road trip around America, and while on the way, they plan to write their band's next record. The tour's name: "A Chronological Acoustical Journey Through The Travis Back Catalogue: Laugh Out Loud Stories, Scottish Accents, Handsome Scottish Men, Naked Torsos." They've certainly got that whole stream-of-consciousness thing down, it would appear.
8 p.m. at The Belcourt, $23. Video for that one song after the jump.
