SXSW 2012 Tour Dates \\ Treefort Music Fest \\ Benchwarmers EP

March is upon us, and it’s gonna be a wild wild one. Incredibly excited to hit the road for a couple weeks and then come home to the inaugural Treefort Music Fest right here in Boise March 22nd – 25th. If you’re not privy to this rad new multi-venue emerging artists festival, highly encourage you do some research here.

We leave on Tuesday to return to SXSW in Austin, TX — this time bringing a bunch of other Idaho bands with us! Couldn’t be more excited about the Idaho delegation at SXSW this year. There’s a full on Official SXSW Boise Music Showcase and then our buddies TEENS are also playing the festival on a separate showcase. We have several shows on the way that we’re pumped about as well — including an appearance at another festival in Texas called 35 Denton in Denton, TX and stops in Colorado, Louisiana and Arkansas too. Playing with some really incredible bands along the way and very excited to see a bunch of old friends! We just added a stop in Amarillo, TX on Friday 3/9 and have added some more SXSW day parties during our stay in Austin. Check out the full list of shows below.

April and May dates to be announced very soon! Our new Benchwarmers EP will be released by Tender Loving Empire on April 21st aka Record Store Day — a yearly celebration of independent record stores that our awesome hometown store The Record Exchange here in Boise plays a large role in and throws quite the celebration. Excited to be a part of it for the second year in a row.
