Hey all you North-Easterners! FOLKLORE (Athens/Philadelphia) and STILL FLYIN' (San Francisco) are doing a mini tour this weekend in your area and you should definitely go check them out...you will NOT be disappointed, guaranteed! They are playing dates in NYC, Boston, and Philly, so there are plenty of chances to catch them in action. I won't be playing trumpet with Folklore - Jimmy has since moved away from Athens to Philly and started a "northern version" of Folklore - nor will I be playing with Still Flyin', which I've also had the pleasure of playing trumpet with for a couple of shows and also recorded with, so this is doubly tragic for me to not be able to be there...but totally awesome for YOU, if you happen to be in the area:
Friday April 3rd - Brooklyn NY @ Union Hall www.unionhallny.com
Saturday April 4th - Boston MA @ PA's Lounge www.paslounge.com
Sunday April 5th - New York NY @ The Cake Shop www.cake-shop.com
Monday April 6th - Philadelphia PA @ Johnny Brenda's www.johnnybrendas.com
FOLKLORE is headed by Jimmy Hughes who runs BUMBLEBEAR RECORDS and who is also a current member of ELF POWER. STILL FLYIN' is a indiepop supergroup of sorts, which includes members of MASTERS OF THE HEMISPHERE, AISLER'S SET, POUNDSIGN, THE BRIGHT LIGHTS, RED PONY CLOCK, KISSING BOOK, LADYBUG TRANSISTOR and a few other bands I'm probably forgetting...so, if you go see Folklore and Still Flyin' play, it's kinda like seeing half-a-dozen bands for the price of two! Kinda, but not really. Anyways, go see them because they are a lot of fun live and quite a spectacle. You NEED THAT in your life, especially this weekend!
