Go see Eric Davidson from the New Bomb Turks promote his "We never learn"- book live in Europe. Hey The Hives are in it! Here are his own words about what's up:
Well below at least and here is the link to his website...
WE NEVER LEARN European Book Tour is a GO!!!
With some help from some Euro pals, I will be bringing the hurly-burly handbook of 1990s garage punk — We Never Learn — over to Europe in March for a gonzo book tour. But leave your corduroy jackets and bifocals at home (well, unless it’s cold and your eyesight sucks), because this will be more sweaty soiree than sardonic sit-down.
First I’ll read and talk shit about making the book; then show a DVD of uber-rare clips, culled from my ol’ VHS collection, featuring bands from the book. (Books should be available for buying and signing at the gigs, hopefully.) Then a bofo punk band will be playing (check dates/clubs for the surprise bands!). And then I will DJ the night away — along with some guest DJs, like Tim Warren (Crypt Records) — while we project THE most sleazy, insane, vintage B-movie trailers all over the walls!!!
Here’s the schedule below, which is about 85% certain, so check here and my Facebook page for future updates.

To commemorate this most Christmas-y time of year, we also constructed a work of art that da Vinci would be envious of (and boy could that guy rock). Word has it that the kids are calling it a "Christmas Card" and it's certainly worth a peep.
Pass the Glögg!
Yours from the studio,
P.S. Keep a look out for another announcement from Hive Manor December 20th!
