How many bona fide American rock legends can I fit in here this week? Well, after Throwing Muses, here’s another one.

Grant Hart is coming to the UK for the first time in, well, donkeys. And even more exciting than that is the fact that the dates start in Mono in Glasgow.

It’s not the easiest tour to find out anything about but via a German site (I think) and SOngkick, Grant has dates as follows in December:

30th November – Mono, Glasgow (tickets)

2nd and 3rd December – Monto Water Rats, London

4th December – The Glee Club, Nottingham

5th December – Venue 1, Hare and Hounds, Birmingham

6th December – Band on the Wall, Manchester

8th December – Ancienne Belgique, Brussells, Belgium

11th December – Grend, Essen, Germany

I’ve only ever seen Grant perform live once, with Nova Mob at the Calton Studios in Edinburgh in 1990 so this is really quite an exciting prospect.
