Last October we were busking at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in Golden Gate Park when the Executive Director of the International Bluegrass Museum wandered by. On the spot, she offered us the opportunity to perform this summer at the ROMP Festival, which the museum hosts every year. Stunned and delighted, we accepted on the spot. Here we are eight months later, and about to hit the road for Kentucky!
Thanks to the generosity of friends and fellow musicians, we were able to line up a couple of gigs along the way. The first one is in Pinedale, Wyoming this Saturday! Thanks a bundle to Adam Mrak for lining us up a show at Rock Rabbit. The details:
Tuesday, we’ll perform at the Abbey Pub in Chicago, IL. Thanks to our friends the Henhouse Prowlers for letting us hop on the bill that night! The Prowlers play there every Tuesday under the name Sexfist. If you’re like us, you think that that’s the most amazing band name you’ve ever heard. If you’re offended by it, we are sad for you.
The next day we’ll drive up to Owensboro, KY! That night, we’ll perform at the after party for the first night of ROMP. We keep pinching ourselves and not waking up, so apparently it’s really happening. It also seems that we’ll play the very next day on the main stage there, round about 2:15 in the afternoon. Tickets are available here, we hope to see you there!
