Vera June is almost a year old! Which, of course, means she can carry her own weight now and mom and dad have an excess of free time again… Thus, Finn Riggins fired up the engines in August and we have been rehearsing and writing AND we’ve added a BASS PLAYER. Yes, the time has finally come for more low end. Finn Riggins is now a quartet! Our good friend Travis Ward (Hillfolk Noir, Junkyard Bandstand, Doug Martsch Trio, basketball buddy, chronic Ranch Fester, neighbor) has jumped on the Finn Riggins train and we couldn’t be more excited about it. Come welcome him to the team at one of the handful of Fall shows we’re playing in the region.

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.
