What a dashing readership. Let me assure each and every one of you that you have made a wise and virtuous choice in deciding to read today’s blog. Your taste = effing impeccable.
Lazerbeak, who you may know as our newest Doomtree dad, hasn’t slept in like 6 days. On our hour-long conference call today, he made about 8 minutes of sense. Sooo, I’m taking the keys to the blog for this week, to allow him to slump over his dining room table and get some rest.
Happily, I’ve a good deal to report this week. For one, the band and I just returned from a little Midwest run. We hit Grand Forks (a weird, cool, museum gig), Fargo (sold out!), Rochester (riling the Lutherans), Sioux Falls (shout out to Soulcrate) and Omaha (fjords!). Here are a few pictures from the trip:
Proud to have played this little dude’s very first show:
Dinner with the team:
In all, the run exceeded our expectations in every way. Thanks to everyone who came to a show—double thanks to the crew that drove in from Denver to catch us in Nebraska.
For those of you who live in the Twin Cities, the band and I have just confirmed our only big hometown play for the summer: The MN State Fair. On August 31st, we’ll be playing the Grandstand (guaranteed points with mom). We’ll be sharing the stage with Jeremy Messersmith, The Jayhawks, and Semisonic. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 11 am and will be available here.
I’ll be announcing another little run of shows later this week; stay tuned for dates, cities, and couple of genuine surprises—I’m doing some weird shit this fall.
