Thanks to everyone that came out to Conor Byrne’s last Thursday. We had a great time. Gold Hope Duo were great. Gramps was his usual amazing self and we did what we do to a happy, dancing Ballard audience.
Now that the first leg of our North to South Seattle Tour is complete, time to start preparing for our next couple appearances in town. First of all, we’ll be headlining an amazing bill at Lo-Fi Performance Gallery in Eastlake on Friday, March 28 with our old buddies The Dolomites. The Dolomites and The Bad Things go back into the Midnite Choir days, when we were just two of maybe four bands that were doing this kind of music in the Pacific Northwest. After travels to Japan, Europe and Mexico City, Stevhen Iancu, essentially the only consistent member of the band, is back to rock out on his accordion with us and Wenatchee’s Jipsea Party, who we have not seen yet but are confident will start things off in a most raucous way.
After that, we’ll be hitting Columbia City with Northern California’s amazing El Radio Fantastique on Saturday, April 5th. But, more on that later.
