Summer is when we catch up with a lot of you, but in case you couldn’t make it to our usual summer festivals, we are doing a midwest tour and bringing the afterglow and vibes straight to you! Here’s a quick rundown of the busy remainder of the summer/early fall coming up:
Saturday, August 20th through Saturday, August 27th we will be doing a short tour of the Midwest. We start at THE ARK in Ann Arbor, MI – the venue where we met our beloved sound captain Kris Truzzi ten years ago. We move on to SPACE in Evanston, IL for a 7:30 show on Wednesday the 31st, followed by Friday at the PARK THEATER in Hayward, WI and Saturday at the THRASHER OPERA HOUSE in Green Lake, WI.
On Labor Day weekend we will be headlining THE WINE AND MUSIC EXPERIENCE, a two day festival in Allentown, NJ. We play on Sunday (Sept. 4) and music runs from noon to five.
The following weekend, September 9 we return to DARYL’S HOUSE in Pawling, NY. Doors open at 5:00 and show starts at 8:00.
We round out the weekend with performances on Saturday and Sunday at the COLORSCAPE CHENANGO FESTIVAL in Norwich, NY. (5:30 both days) This is a terrific little festival featuring the works of juried artists from around the eastern U.S., as well as a variety of musical artists (Vance Gilbert, Brother Sun, The McKrells, Caravan of Thieves, Jeremy Wallace Trio, Answer the Muse, Upstate Rubdown, and Prof. Louie and the Crowmatix are all in this year’s lineup!)
We round out the month of September in Teaneck, NJ with a show at MEXICALI LIVE on Saturday, September 24.
We’ll send out an October newsletter but be sure to look ahead our Halloween shows, MISCHIEF NITE in Jim Thorpe, PA Saturday October 22nd and the GRAND SLAMBOVIAN HALLOWEEN BALL at Infinity Hall (Hartford, CT) on October 29. This annual show is one of the big Slambovian events of the year. Don’t miss it! More details to follow, but you can reserve tickets HERE.
Festivals always inspire us to upgrade our merch for the shows, so we’ll have some of our NEW MERCH in tow, including a reissue of our third studio album “The Great Unravel,” the much-requested “A Night at the Puppet House” live album, and “A Box of Everything II” – in addition to tote bags, and various T-shirt designs (while supplies last!)
