Hey folks! For the past several weeks I have been steeped in booking this tour for the fall. If you haven’t heard the recent update, here’s the basic outline:
- August 26: Birthday / tour kickoff / solo EP release show. (More about this soon! Save the date!)
- August 29: Set sail for (fly to) Amsterdam to visit with my brother and mom for a week and a half, and hopefully play a show there, thus making this an INTERNATIONAL tour.
- September 9: fly back to Chicago.
- September 10 – October 25: Tour this damn country by riding those rails! Want to see my rail pass? Here it is:
So here’s where I need your help. Right now I have one show set up, September 29 in Brooklyn with the fantastic Brittain Ashford. One city down, twenty-one to go. Here’s my tentative schedule, though it’s all flexible:
Chicago, 9/10 – 9/15
Baltimore, 9/21 – 9/23
New York, 9/24 – 9/30
Boston, 10/1 – 10/2
(Portland, ME somewhere in here?)
Philadelphia, 10/4 – 10/5
New Orleans, 10/8 – 10/10
San Antonio, 10/11
Tucson, 10/13 – 10/14
Los Angeles, 10/15 – 10/18
Seattle, 10/20 – 10/22
(Vancouver, BC? Am I crazy? INTERNATIONAL, WHAT)
Portland, 10/24 – 10/25
Do you book shows in any of these places, or know anyone who does? Do you know artists local to these areas in the lyrical folk/rock vein, who might be so gracious as to invite an out-of-towner to share a bill (so I can play to more than just friends and their friends)? I’d be honored and gratified if you’d share tips with me, or write a message of introduction. Feel free to chime in with a comment here, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks a lot folks! This shit is happening and it’s going to kill. Believe that.
