So we went off to tour Europe from mid-July to mid-August of 2011, and we also had a mini-tour down to LA that same December, and we went back to LA and hit Vegas like rockstars just the other day. (Well, more like Vintage Noir Folkstars, but still...) We love to tour, we love to play, and we're incredibly charming. Of course, we're based here in SF, as all tours, no matter how glorious, must come to an end. But fear not: we've got a couple of shows lined up for the coming months, and we'll be touring again in late 2014 and in 2015. And if you'd like to have us play at your venue, private party, or special event, please contact us and we'll get the ball rolling! We love to share our music with audiences large and small, so please get in touch on the contact page, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org -- we'd love to hear from you! And just for reference, go ahead and scroll down to check out a selection of some of the venues we've played in the past... This list below includes events from the summer of 2011 til the Summer of 2012, featuring our Ridiculously Amazing DIY European Tour, which you can read all about in our Euro Blog by Clicking Here. There's Oodles of photos to enjoy and there's a nice little series of blog entries to read! It's a pleasant way to spend an hour or so, looking through photos, watching videos, reading a blog... Europe was awesome. Relive the magic! Yeah!

(...and that brings us back to mid 2012, starting with Crafternoon, in the column above... We know it's quite a list of gigs, but we do love to play and play! In fact, this list isn't entirely complete, as we've omitted a few duplicates -we play A LOT of Farmer's Markets- and the complete list of gigs that we've played as a band, in various formations, or Erin solo, or that Erin played before this particular band formed in 2010, goes back even further into the mid-2000's. But let's be honest, this list as it stands is rather extensive, and the mid 2000's were a bit of a blur for some of us... But hopefully this has given you an idea of the types of venues we play, and how much we love to perform! Oh, and below you'll find a bit of blank space. There's just so much information crowding the interwebs these days, we thought a bit of emptiness might do us all some good. So here it is...)
That was a pleasant moment of silent repose, no? And a lovely trip down memory lane, yes? We must agree. Loverly indeed. Let's do it all again! Onwards to the future!! Ka-BOOM!!
