Helllllooo out there. We are starting our second U.S. tour of 2017 on Thursday, August 3 at Tom Grainey's in Boise, ID. It's gonna be a hot one out there. Tomorrow in Portland, OR we are looking at over 105 degrees. Damn. But here we go, regardless. We will be covering some of the same ground we did in the Spring and some new territory as well. Glad to be making our first stops in Provo, UT and Fort Collins, CO, and Chapel Hill, NC. And we hope to see some familiar faces in the towns we are returning to.
Merry has created a new design for a t-shirt and screen printed poster that we are adding to our merch booth. It was inspired by the rural community we have been living in since our return to the Pacific Northwest in May. It has been a rejuvenating experience with plenty of hard work, beautiful scenery, wildlife, and healthy eating. The barn in the picture sits next door to our farm, abandoned and held captive by the bank which repossessed it. The barn owl in the center of the image was living with his family inside the barn until a great horned owl (also in the picture) came through and devoured them. Farm life is beautiful and harsh. Grab one at a show, or if you miss us, we will put them in our online store when we return in mid September.
It's been a really nice stay in the Northwest. Special shout to Vancouver, WA and the support we have received in that community. We also have to say that Wildwood Music Festival is the best! It was the perfect size, great production, wonderful stage and sound team, beautiful grounds, and lovely people everywhere. You should keep that on your radar friends. It is awesome! Thanks to everyone who keeps us moving forward. Love you guys!
