Ranch Fest! new summer dates announced! baby baby break!

Soooo… we’ve been sitting on some awesome news that we finally get to share with you… Our resident rock goddess, guitar slayer, the one and only Lisa Simpson is with child. Yes yes! Lisa and Gilbert are pregnant and having their first child, which we’re collectively all besides ourselves with excitement and curiosity. Baby is due in November.

What does this mean for Finn Riggins as a band? It means that we are going to take the longest break from live shows we’ve taken since starting the band in August of 2006. We’re going to use the opportunity to settle in to the practice space and the studio and finish and write and record a new album. It’s a phase we’re very much looking forward to. But as you all know, we love the road and love playing live and hanging out with all of you. So we’ve booked a series of shows in nearby places to celebrate with y’all. Our last show before the baby break will be sometime mid-July, so come see us before then if you can. Most of the dates are posted below, there will be a couple more additions soon.

Also, RANCH FEST is almost here and it’s going to be the best yet. Lineup this year is amazing and the weather will be outstanding. Some new bands to the Ranch this year include Portland psychedelia masterminds Eternal Tapestry, Bay Area electronic/psych project Mwahaha, and one of our favorite bands as of late, the amazing AU. Many more great additions this year and plenty of the classic Ranch favorites (Tartufi, Hillfolk Noir, Le Fleur, Holiday Friends, etc) — see the full lineup over on the Ranch Fest facebook page. If you plan on coming, please RSVP via the RSVP link which will also help get you dialed in to all the details.
