thank you @wfconcerts for an amazing evening! super fun to have a one-off with @rebelutionmusic + @stephenmarley, and @dispatch were amazing as always. also had the best surprise - @lizwheels23 was at the show!! we grew up doing martial arts together so i’ve known her basically forever, but we haven’t seen each other in years cause she’s killin it out on the west coast. so fun to catch up. @saranacbrewery tonight with Dispatch!
what a start to the second leg of tour! sold out crowd + such a joy for the @rayezaragoza crew to be back on the road with @dispatch. couldn’t ask for a more welcoming and gracious band + crew to share the road with. @bradcorrigan, thanks for wearing Raye’s shirt onstage last night! i’m still smiling big from the second bench of the van - headed to Bangor, Maine with special guests @stephenmarley and @rebelutionmusic tonight!
@skoutoutloud’s Space in Between headlining tour starts TONIGHT! Rhode Island, get to the guild at 8pm to see Skout play their RI debut with @brianaewhite courtesy of @levelexchange. boston, they’ll be at great scott tomorrow! it’s tugging on my heartstrings a little that i’m missing their first show in my home state, so rhody, take lots of photos and vids and @ me pls+thx
the @rayezaragoza crew called an audible last night + instead of heading up to vermont, we crashed our good friend @dansalpaugh’s first ever acoustic band set, featuring another good friend of mine, @trevorsbrownmusic! the set was wicked good + absolutely worth having to get up at 5am this morning. there’s always coffee, there’s only ever one acoustic debut show. @shelburnemuseum, see you tonight for raye and @dispatch’s SOLD OUT show! so stoked to hear an extended set from raye tonight. #cheesin
me doing my best rock n roll impression in the stands at @redrocksco. this is also me today, because tour with @rayezaragoza + @dispatch + @nahko_and_mftp has officially started back up and i’m so stoked!! cameras + truck stop coffee + east coast humidity here we come 🤘🏻
there’s a town called Little America in the middle of nowhere in wyoming that consisted of a couple dilapidated restaurants, a motel, a rest stop with bewilderingly fancy bathrooms, + also this dinosaur which i sprinted across the street to go see. fun fact, aka why i am holding my shoe: i was wearing socks that had this very same dinosaur on it except wearing sweaters! it was fate. 🦕 :: 📸 @ekillsnight
IMPORTANT MUSIC NEWS ABOUT TWO AMAZING ARTISTS, PEOPLE! hi ok normally i use all lowercase so that felt aggressive but anyway i have exciting news!! the two adorbs and wildly talented musicians in the first photo, aka @skoutoutloud, kick off their headlining tour this weekend + are FINALLY playing a show in Rhode Island! @theguild courtesy of @levelexchange. full tour sched in photo two.
photo three is the incomparable @rayezaragoza + the whole gang is smiling like that today cause we hit the road with @dispatch again this week, starting with a SOLD OUT show at @shelburnemuseum in VT! so excited to welcome @hepalmaer (merch) and @mallorymturner (photo/vid) to the team! Raye’s full summer sched in photo four.
you can’t go wrong seeing either of these acts so treat yo’self and buy some tix! and RI, since i can’t be there, record the hell out of the Skout gig and @ me kthx
going through some old video footage and dang the @EricHutchinson & the believers show at @musicinthezoo last summer was a blast. so much energy! here’s a few photos from the show.
SPACE IN BETWEEN IS OUT TODAY! from the first time @skoutoutloud sent me a voice memo with the intro to this song, i knew we had something special. they’ve worked their asses off on this song, a tribute to the experience of living in + learning to embrace the in-between moments. 2018 has been one long in-between for me on so many levels + i know i’m not the only one who feels that way.
so cheers to the in-between. the not knowing + the realizing that it’s ok not to know. cheers to the strange limbo between who you were a year ago, a month ago, a minute ago, + who you aspire to be. cheers to the space in between the tests + the results, whether it’s for a degree or a diagnosis. cheers to the moments you feel stuck + the moments you feel free + the moments that inhabit both spaces at once.
cheers to @skoutoutloud, to @valksterrr + @cgladney4, for opening up their hearts + souls to create a song us listeners can cling to like driftwood when we’re floating in the in-between. for creating art that’s a celebration of uncertainty. i love you goons + i’m so proud of you.
