College & Electric Youth Taking “A Real Hero” On The Road With The Drive Tour

Were you just as smitten with the Drive soundtrack as we were, and equally as vexed when the movie’s standout track — College and Electric Youth‘s “A Real Hero” — lost out to “Party Rock Anthem” at this year’s MTV Movie Awards? Well, now you can steer your ride toward catching both acts, along with French singer/producer Anoraak, on The Drive Tour this summer. The trek kicks off at Brooklyn’s Music Hall Of Williamsburg on July 20, and wraps up a month later at Chapel Hill, North Carolina’s Local 506, on August 17.

All we have to say is that someone on stage had better be wearing Gosling’s scorpion jacket. Rev up with the full, current list of dates below.
