The launch of the Never-Ending Fall Tour has been a roller coaster ride of some absolutely amazing shows. Here are some of the highlights! For those of you on Twitter, James live tweets on the road. Follow the mayhem @TheWayHomeMusic.
Next up: Harrisburg, Boston, Bridgeport, Ithaca, Wilmington, & more!
Philadelphia, PA: North Star Bar & Legendary Dobbs
We launched into our Never-Ending Fall tour by playing at the North Star Bar alongside Filmstar and Venice Sunlight. Check out the video of our tune "Boundary Blurring" taken by our good friend JV! If you listen closely, you can hear some of our uber-fans singing along! Before leaving for Rochester, we had a last-minute booking at the Legendary Dobbs as the house band for Art Director's Club Battle of the Bands. Nice job to all the bands who participated!
Rochester, NY: Abilene Bar & Lounge
Next on the itinerary was James and Dan's home town of Rochester. Abilene's Bar & Lounge played host to a surprisingly good audience considering that we were competing with Rochester's very first Fringe Festival! The spontaneous hoedown to our song "Jessica" was a welcome surprise!
Philadelphia, PA: Milkboy
We returned to our home town to play our very first, all-acoustic set with James on the acoustic, Dan slappin de bass, Nick percussing a storm, and Henry accordioning the ... well, accordion. We shared the stage at Milkboy Philly with some crazy good folk/Americana bands: On the Water - The City and Horses - Food Will Win the War. Two of them came all the way from NY!
Baltimore, MD: Joe Squared
As we arrived in Baltimore, we caught wind that the Baltimore Orioles had just been knocked out of the playoffs. Nevertheless, spirits were high in Charm City. Survival Society opened with their high-octane tunes in spite of bassist Erin's plague. We were pleasantly surprised and mystified by the dancing man who danced uncontrollably through our entire set! Thanks to Joe Squared for also providing us with a delicious meat-lover's band pizza.
Washington DC. Velvet Lounge
The day after the Baltimore show, we made our way to Henry's stomping grounds of Washington DC. Prior to the show, James and Henry feasted on Ethiopian food compliments to band friend, Allison from the Chang Family Band. Our buddies at Black Checker hit the ground running with an insanely energetic performance that got us as well as the audience amped! To close the night, funk/jazz band Fujank stole our keyboardist for some dance-inducing jams. We got written-up and reviewed in the DC Rock Live blog! Check it out here.
