GALLO QUITS UK - In December 2001, Vincent was scheduled to appear on RADIO 1
(BBC) in England. The DJ, (Giles Peterson) with whom he was set to talk to received
a very funny voicemail from Gallo apologizing for his absence and explaining why it was
really the Brits who were to blame for the cancelled appearance. (A Drowning In Brown
site EXCLUSIVE! Hear it for yourself. - shout out to Christopher in England for all his
GALLO MINI "WHEN" TOUR 2001- On December 17, Vincent Gallo announced the
*ONLY* live shows that he would perform in 2001 supporting his new Lp "WHEN." The
shows were as follows:
Vincent Gallo (lead guitar, vocals)

Butthole Surfers as well as a close friend (and roommate) of Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John

Wendy & Lisa and Abby Travis to name but only a few.
12/25 and 12/26 - TOKYO
Venue: Bunkamura Orchard Hall
Venue: Koseinenkin-kaikan Geijuteu Hall
Venue: Hiroshima Club Quattro
One additional performance was announced just prior to his return from the Japan leg
for Los Angeles at The Moomba Club - December 30, but was sadly cancelled due to
logistical problems. Apparently, Gallo's gear did not make it back from Japan quite as
quickly as he did. However, Gallo did promise to make up the gig and 2002 dates are
tentative. be sure to watch this page and www.vincentgallo.com for the latest tour
announcements. The good news is even though the majority of you reading this will
have missed him live, the concert in Hiroshima was recorded by a resourceful fan and
there will be mp3s of the show featured here from time to time. In fact, you may
have already found one of them by now . . .

IT'S BEEN QUIET . . . Vincent has been rather silent of late with sparse appearances
or postings on his official web site over the past 6 months. It may be safe to assume
that he is hard at work with post-production on his latest film which he has directed
(The Brown Bunny). Rumors are abound of a forthcoming Lp due sometime this
summer. You can be sure we'll post the news here when it's solid.
Finally, thanks to all of you for your support and kind words thru the past several
months. I know many of you waited patiently for any updates or new content and I
hope there's something to be found here that will make up (somewhat, if not
completely) for the long wait.
Stay Tuned . . .
