We would like, to the point of feeling almost all-caps about it, to thank everybody for making our first tour of the year an incredibly fun time night after night after night. Just a nightly source of creative and emotional renewal for us. You guys! It was so much fun!
So, like, what the hell, is our opinion: why not go to go over to Ireland & Scotland & England and do the touring we already talked about & then come home, have a couple peanut butter sandwiches, break skin on a project that won’t poke its head above ground ’til next year, and then high-tail it to the west coast?
14 – Varsity Theater, Minneapolis, MN
16 – The Showbox, Seattle, WA
17 – The Biltmore Cabaret, Vancouver, BC
18 – Aladdin Theater, Portland, OR
20 – The Fillmore, San Francisco, CA
23 – the El Rey, Los Angeles, CA
And then, who’s it gonna hurt, why not play Lollapalooza?
5-7- Lollapalooza, Chicago, IL
Did I mention we’re playing some dates with Bright Eyes, too, who I last crossed paths with in Grinnell an age ago? Those dates are clearly visible on the yellow post-it to the right. I’ll know who’s keeping us company on the west coast before long, too, so keep your eyes peeled. Meanwhile, hope to see everybody out there! Not “everybody” literally, though. If absolutely everybody shows up at every show there will be all kinds of logistics problems.
