Shipping News take off for Japan

After this weekend's show in Chicago, Shipping News are ditching the cold Midwestern weather to make nine performances in Japan. Japanese audiences will get them all to themselves for the rest of March and for the first few days of April before Noble, Mueller, Crabtree and Cook feel safe enough to venture back into the by-then-relenting brutal tundra of the middle states. Can you blame them?
