You Am I are tagging along on round one of The JD Set tour, giving fans a chance to see them for nix. The local legends will join up-and-comers The Glass Ceiling and The Shiny Brights for the tour.

“We discussed getting involved and decided to do it because if we didn’t, someone else would anyway, and it’s great to see the corporate sector being involved in the music scene in a positive way,” Rusty Hopkinson said.

“We liked all the bands that went up for voting and hope that this little road show will be a great introduction to some cool new groups. We’re just along for the ride, doing what we love to do and hoping to provide a positive influence to the supports.”

Check out You Am I on The JD Set at the following dates.

22 May 2009 – The Zoo, Brisbane
23 May 2009 – The Gaelic, Sydney
29 May 2009 – The Prince Bandroom, Melbourne
