Hey there hoot owls,
We just posted a slew of new tour dates to round out this calendar year. Yall wanna come hang out before armageddon? Do we still think the world ends every new year? Either way it might, so come see us before it's all over.
If you're in the Charlotte area sept. 26th, come visit us a Noda Brewing Company where we will be unvailing our newest music video for our song, Untitled Traveler. We're playing some acoustic tunes, favorites as well as some new jams, so come hang out!
Hey There friends,
It's been a minute since we've updated you folks, and we're sorry for that. We've had our feet on the pavement booking, playing, recording, and filming. We've got a mulitude of songs in the works for our new record, some great shows coming up, and our newest music video, coming out via LL2 Productions, is nearing completion! Be on the look out as we will keep you all updated on where and when you can watch this little bugger.
Hootie Hoo ya’ll, TSb here with a follow-up on our tour. We apologize for the delay in our update, but since our return we have spent the past few days recuperating and tying off loose ends. The last leg of our tour was some of the best. We spent time in Texas, Louisiana, and Florida.
The majority of our Texas leg was in San Antonio, but we also made trips to Lufkin and Dallas. While in San Antone, we played in front of some great crowds at 502 Bar, Boneshakers, and the Sparrow. A big shout-out must go to our good friend Wells, who brought a sensational crowd out to Boneshakers.
During our downtime in San Antone, we ventured up and down the Riverwalk, mingling with the locals while secretly searching for any member of the San Antonio Spurs. Sadly, we left there with no encounter with Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, or the newly acquired Tracy McGrady (just purchased from China for the playoff push). On our way to Dallas we made a stop at Standpipe Coffee House, where we enjoyed some serious java and a fantastic crowd. Once in Dallas we came to the realization that booking a show during the day on Easter Sunday isn’t the brightest of ideas. While the crowd was slim, those who did attend were very welcoming and spent some coin of TSb Merchandise (Get your own gear here Click for Merch Link).
After Dallas, we were headed for the home stretch as we moved toward Florida. On our way we made a stop at the Wild Salmon, in Lafayette, LA. There we had The Two Glens opening up for us and we quickly became Best Friends. After Louisiana, we made our final stop in Jacksonville, FL. This was the culmination of tour, as we played at the Riverside Arts Market where the weather was beautiful, the throngs were strong, and our new friend Tressa helped us out in the Merch tent.
That night after our show, we returned to the hotel and had a hard time falling asleep; we all were kind of lying in the bed. I am not sure if it was from the amplifiers or what, but we couldn’t shake the ringing in our head. So we headed down to the hotel lobby and smoked the day’s last cigarette and caught the Final Four.
It was during this time we all got to reflect on the tour. We met a lot of people and got to see the good in this country. We thank you all who supported us on this journey and continue to support us through our music.
Thanks again to all, and remember:
Peace, Love, and Power Chords
Hello again TSb followers. Hope all is well on your end. It’s been a week or more since we last shared any insight on our journey, so we have a lot to convey.
After our stops in Tennessee, we ventured further South where we spent some time in Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, and Texas. Our first stop was in Athens, Georgia at the famous Terrapin Brewery. Several Elkinites joined us for hops and tunes (I guess you could say we had a Hopping good time). We would like to give a big Hoot-out to Christina and her friends, who provided us with shelter and warmth. After Athens, we moseyed over to Birmingham, Alabama, where we played at the Nick. This place had tons of character and history, and the crowd was electric. After the Nick, we headed back to GA where we played at the Nick’s sister bar, Smith’s Olde Bar located in Hot-lanta. Like the Nick, this place was saturated with history and eclectic vibes. Another Hoot-out has to go to India Ramey and Abe Parker, of which we shared our time with at Smith’s Olde Bar.
After Atlanta our voyage continued down I85 and on into Auburn. Though, we couldn’t get through the Dirty-Bird without first sitting in three hours of rush hour traffic. Let’s face it, when you are on a tour of this magnitude, you want to experience everything a city has to offer…right? Once we finally made it into Auburn, we must have brought the bad luck with us as our show at Fiji was canceled due to inclement weather. Normally a cancelation is a major bummer (and in this case it t’was), but when you have awesome fans like we do, then the craziest of cray-cray can happen. Thanks to Kathryn, Molly, and others we were able to put on impromptu house show, of which would put even Kid’n Play to shame.
After Auburn, we had a few open dates, so we ventured into New Orleans. Let us be the first to say, that this place lives up to the hype. We jumped head first into the local cuisine of jambalaya, crawfish pie, filé gumbo, and then polished those off with local treats like Hurricanes, Hand Grenades, and Shark Attacks. The presentation alone for the Shark Attacks is worth a trip to Orleans.
After a few inappropriate encounters and events to forget, we continued on. The Lone Star state was up next, and boy do they do their best to prevent speeding. The amount of road construction and rush hour traffic will thwart anyone from pushing 35 mph on the odometer. We did finally make it San Antonio, where we set up camp and we will share our Texas saga in our next installment.
