Doug Burr leaves Texas and hits the road for Midwest shows !  It’s not since last year when Doug went on tour with Son Volt that he has left his home state of Texas. He is on tour in support of his amazing new record O Ye Devastator.

Also of note is that Doug wrote the title track for the film Topeka, which has been winning too many film festival accolades to list.
