Tomorrow night kicks off Peter Buck's two-night stand at the Secret Society Ballroom (as detailed here). Buck will be joined by musicians Scott McCaughey, Bill Rieflin, and Kurt Bloch and performing songs from his two vinyl-only solo albums (2012's Peter Buck and this year's I Am Back to Blow Your Mind Once Again). Opening both shows is the debut of the mysterious super-Earth.

What is super-Earth, you ask? It has been revealed that it is a supergroup of the aforementioned musicians (Buck, McCaughey, Rieflin, Bloch) with the addition of Corin Tucker (Sleater-Kinner, Corin Tucker Band), who has collaborated with Buck in the past. According to McCaughey, they're "performing an entire set of soon-to-be-album-sized new compositions by said Buck/Tucker combine." Which can only mean a super-Earth record is on the way from Tucker and Buck (although it's also suggested that super-Earth's name is subject to change).

Of this week's shows, McCaughey goes on to add, "Being Tuesday / Wednesday nights, the music will start at 8 pm, and there will be deathly silence by 10:30 pm or so; therefore none need be deprived of that Top-Three-Element-Of-Life-Contender: sleep."

As a special bonus, these shows—according to the flyer—are brought to you by legendary Procol Harum guitarist Robin Trower. Here is one of the about 50 or so amazing Procol Harum songs that aren't "A Whiter Shade of Pale."
