Press release:

Whammy Bar + Valhalla invite you to hitch a ride, settle in the backseat and listen to John Garcia’s stories as he performs tracks across his storied catalogue acoustically for the first time ever in New Zealand. Celebrate ANZAC eve in Auckland + ANZAC day in Wellington.

Close your eyes and just imagine cruising down Route 66 in a Mustang Convertible. It’s just turned from dusk to night and there is nothing but the cool breeze, a lonely road and a coyote howling at the moon that’s illuminated with a map of the cosmos within it.

Now open your eyes… welcome to the world of JOHN GARCIA.

Over the last two-plus decades, JOHN GARCIA‘s voice has set the standard for the sound of the California desert. His work in genre-progenitors Kyuss speaks for itself — loudly, and with much fuzz — and subsequent outfits Vista Chino, Unida, Slo Burn, Hermano.

His contribution to the legacy of rock n roll is relentless not historical.

Garcia says of the upcoming tour they he is, “super stoked to be coming back to Australia, especially with this project, playing all the classics acoustically proves to be really something special, don't miss out!"

We invite you to hitch a ride, settle in the backseat and listen to his stories as he performs tracks across his storied catalogue acoustically for the first time ever in Australia.
