I’m no doctor, but I do have the perfect tonic to ring in spring – a high energy, rock ‘n’ roll elixir from Radio Birdman’s Deniz Tek. Coming to you all the way from Australia, Tek is playing three U.S. dates in the Northeast in support of his terrific new solo record, “Mean Old Twister.”

I caught up with Deniz the other day and he asked me to relay a message:

“I’m looking forward to my first solo shows in three years. The US dates are to be followed by a long run of shows in Europe. The band is fired up and ready to hit hard. Our set will feature a couple of tracks from the new album, as well as some of our favorites from the solo back catalog. We’ll throw in a few Radio Birdman tunes, and maybe something from the new “Acoustic KO” release too. We might even twist Keith’s arm to sing a Fleshtones classic! There will be surprises. We can’t wait to get out there and kick ’em out. See you there!”


Thursday, March 30: Harrisburg, PA – H*MAC
