October 2014 Mini-Tour + New member!

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.

new video! Fall NW tour dates

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.

Eastern Oregon flash trip

eastern oregon snowy mountains

woke up at 4:30 am yesterday to brave some snowy snowy roads and hustle over to little Cove, OR between the Wallowa and Blue Mountains for a day of hanging with the kids at the K-12 Cove School. absolutely incredible time. long adventurous days in their halls and classrooms talking music and art and life on the road. what a fantastic group of kids. really inspiring day.
