Fall is here! Thanks for an incredible summer — so many great shows all over the West. We’re spending the Fall working on new material but we do have a few shows around the NW that we’ll be emerging from the laboratory for. Check the dates below. Show this Friday in Boise at Hyde Park Street Fair!
Also wanted to share this moving video done by a Boise friend about his family using our song A President, A Pacifist, An Auto Restorer. He submitted it to the 208 Music Video Showcase that happened last week here in Boise. Very cool.
Big thanks to everyone that made it out to the Radio Boise Tour PRE Fat Block Party on Friday in downtown Boise. Ended up being a really incredible party and lots of money was raised for Radio Boise! Great volunteer help and all kinds of community support made for a great event and a start of a new tradition.
It’s been a great summer all around and it’s been a huge pleasure to see each and everyone of you at the shows all over the West! We’ve got one more string of summer shows this week with some of our bestest band buddies ever and one of the greatest bands of our generation — TARTUFI. If you don’t know Tartufi yet, this is a nice introduction — blowing minds.
Been an incredible Summer so far! Amazing time in California in early July, and now on a series of regional festivals. The UMS last weekend in Denver was awesome once again. And very thankful for all the great bands we’ve been playing with as of late. Most of the rest of our Summer shows are in Idaho and Wyoming, but there will be some more NW dates announced soon for the Fall. However, most of the Fall will be dedicated to writing and recording a new album. Full remaining Summer dates below.
Our buddy Joseph Von Stengel out in NY sent us this incredible 8 bit animation for Big News off of our recent Benchwarmers EP. Surprised us with it last week. We were floored. Very excited to share it with y’all. Welcome to Finn Riggins the video game
