Peter Buck to Play Solo at 40 Watt

Peter Buck

If Mike Mills can do it, I reckon Peter Buck can too. The 40 Watt Club has announced that on Thursday, Nov. 14, the R.E.M. six-stringer will perform solo alongside Drivin’ N’ Cryin’ axeman Kevn Kinney and his Roamin’ Countrymen band. The concert is being billed as a “Special Community Show.”

Tickets for this special occurrence, which will run you a measly $5, go on sale tomorrow (Friday) morning at 10 a.m. and are available through the club’s website as well as at Wuxtry Records.

40 Watt tix also on sale tomorrow at 10 a.m.? Kurt Vile, Bill Callahan and a newly announced Son Volt gig. Sorry, bank account! I’m not sorry.
