Blunts on a Train

The Duppy Gun guys will perform with The Congos on train in Los Angeles and Oakland, California.

Station to Station is the name of the event and it goes down on a train. Doug Aitken - artist who got tired of galleries with white walls and white wine - put together this cross-country art train thing, NY to Cali, stopping in nine different locations from major cities to off-the-grid tweaker dust bowl type spots. Duppy dudes Sun Araw & M. Geddes Gengras are on board with The Congos in LA and SF.
