festival

marching into march

We are heading out to slightly warmer (and then much warmer) climates this coming month! We’re pretty jazzed to be touring in Florida for the first time as part of the Listening Room Festival. If you have friends in the area, please let them know where we will be! Spring seems to bring a cavalcade of new music, and we’re excited for new releases from amazing Canadian songwriters like Rose Cousins and Sarah Harmer! We are also working on new music, but what we’ve got won’t be ready until around about autumn. Keep your eyes peeled!

The full line-up is rather amazing and includes folks like Sharon Van Etten, Sheila E., Belle & Sebastian, iskwē, Danny Michel, The Strumbellas, and about 40 other fantastic acts. Check out the festival’s official Spotify playlist to hear songs from the whole line-up.

We were clearly outclassed, but the vibe was amazing and we watched Aaron Mangoff and The Morals play fantastic sets before we went to Rocky Raccoon’s to set up and play. The audience was amazing, giving a great singalong for “in your defense” and calling for an encore. The next day we woke up…    read more.
