fun.'s second tour won't come to Phoenix, but there is a little local flavor to be had when the new project by former Format mamber Nate Ruess hits the road later this month. Phoenix indie act Miniature Tigers, who recently opened for Ben Folds on his East Coast tour, has been tabbed to open (dates here). In other Mini T's news, the band also did a video interview with Seattle-based music blog Three Imaginary Girls.
Yes, that's Charlie Brand in the above video -- not a young Matthew Sweet.
Oh, and you can also download a free MP3 of the band's "Tell it to the Volcano" single here.
