Smithereens singer Pat DiNizio has joined the Reform Party in his bid for a U.S. Senate seat from New Jersey. Enticed by the small-government policies of the party and the success of Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura, Dinizio has planned an official announcement of his candidacy on June 14. To help bring in nonvoters, DiNizio will hold a series of Tuesday night concerts with special guests in New Jersey starting April 4 in Hoboken. The shows will be free for anyone with a voter-registration card. DiNizio is currently on a solo "living room tour" of bars, living rooms, karate dojos, houseboats and bowling alleys around the East Coast, with dates scheduled through early July.
