Local H will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their 2002 album Here Comes the Zoo on tour this fall. These are "An Evening With Local H" shows, and they'll be playing the album in full, plus a set songs from the rest of their discography. Dates kick off September 11 in Omaha and run through December 13 in Toronto. All dates are listed below.

The NYC show is at Bowery Ballroom on December 5, and tickets for the whole tour are on sale now.

Speaking on the album's legacy, frontman Scott Lucas says, "In a lot of ways, this was the toughest record we ever had to make. We were at a real turning and it wasn’t just a record that would determine the future of the band — it was the record that would determine whether or not Local H was going to even have a future. We had just worked with Roy Thomas Baker on Pack Up the Cats — so getting another producing legend was not in the plan. Then we found out Jack Douglas was interested. So what could we do? He’s the man. We had no choice but to go with him."
