LA-based band The Soft Pack are hitting the road on Saturday--the roads of Los Angeles, that is. The San Diego-transplants (formerly known as The Muslims) will play 10 consecutive shows marathon-style all across town in an event that has them partnered with the FYF Fest and riding in a veggie-oil fueled 1992 Blue Bird school bus. The band is inviting fans to follow along all day or hit up spots wherever they can; while some of the locations have been announced some are still top secret, so you can follow the band via Twitter the day-of to see where their next stop is.

So why tour LA this weekend? The Soft Pack are about to release a self-titled album Tuesday on Kemado Records, for which all the songs were written here in Los Angeles, as guitarist Matty McLoughlin told LAist back in September.

On Saturday, The Soft Pack starts the morning off rockin' at a house party, followed by stops in Sunset Junction, at FMLY in Venice, and several shows at fan houses and other secret locations that will be revealed the day-of. Check out the schedule after the jump, and check out the band playing "Pull Out" at La Cita last summer in the video above; McLoughlin noted it's one of his favorites from the upcoming album.
