Mineral in Austin last week (more by Tim Griffin)
Mineral

The reunited Mineral played a surprise hometown show (pics) in Austin last week, and their tour begins in proper this week with four sold out NYC shows. The first (and smallest) happens on Thursday (9/4) at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn. Like most of the tour, Into It. Over It. opens, but the venue's website is also advertising a "Very Special Guest." Mineral adds, "If you have tickets to our show at St Vitus on 9/4 we suggest getting there early for a special treat." Who do you think it will be?

UPDATE: It's Frank Turner.

The tour continues with a 3-night run at Bowery Ballroom from Friday (9/5) through Sunday (9/7). All dates are listed below...
