Well, we couldn't be more excited to be hitting the road for our second East Coast tour in six months! We've got some noticeably bigger, better, and more improved dates on this trip and hope you'll make it out if you've made it this far. Check out the dates here on our website or on our Tour Facebook event at:
We're also excited to announce that we've picked up a set at Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival in October, if you get there on Thursday or early Friday you'll be able to catch us. We play the Meadow Stage at 1:45pm on 10/11!
Also, we're participating in Moving Day NC Triangle, a benefit and walk/run for Parkinson's Disease Research. We're pairing our song "Julia", about Jeb's grandmother with Parkinson's, with the event and will be playing at Koka Booth Amphitheater the morning of Saturday 11/2 during and after the walk. If you haven't seen our live video from over at Jack's house back in May of "Julia" here's an embedded YouTube:
It's been a great summer so far here in Chapel Hill! Lots of fresh tunes and musical equipment (our new mixer is the stuff of dreams), not to mention all the fresh tomatoes, and our flock of young hens laying eggs out in the backyard!
This weekend we'll be headed out to the Doodad Farm outside Greensboro, NC for the 2nd annual WhoDat Festival! There's a great line-up of bands, art vendors, and activities. We go on at 3:30pm tomorrow, but the festival runs through Sunday. Check out the hyperlink above to see their website.
We'll be headed out on the road again for a week or so in Late-September, back up the east coast to VT. We'll update the dates as they come in!
Big thanks to all the friends new and old from this past weekend at Saturdays in Saxapahaw! We had such a great time. Saxapahaw is a beautiful little town, and we can't wait to return to play at the Haw River Ballroom on Friday with Driftwood! It's gonna be a special night. You can buy tickets here
It's gonna be a busy weekend. On Saturday, we're hitting up Deep South the Bar in Raleigh w/ friends Justin Lacy & The Swimming Machine and Alpenglow of Burlington, VT. Three great bands for a whopping 5$. Here's a link to the Facebook Event Page.
And then Sunday we play a private event for UNC Chapel Hill's Center for the Study of the American South. We hope at least they get the Southern Lit reference in our band name...
Also, Jeb's mom, Brantley is most likely going to be in town! Party!
So, we made it back in one piece from our first east coast tour. From playing a show for the deaf to being upstaged by a cop car in NYC during our set in the East River Park, it was a hell of an experience.
Big thanks to Marlene and Sarah Purnell, Kim and Adam Turner, Kira, Ty Hall, Matt Ill, Raph, Hannah, and all of the folks who fed us, beered us, or gave us a place to crash. Y'all kept us alive, seriously. Thank you.
We made SO MANY other new friends, and feel so loved and thankful for all of them as well. Those of you who see this and made it out to a show, tell your friends! We'll be coming back, and we'd love to share! Stay tuned for more details. Expecting September/October time.
Also, you can find our album streaming on our Reverbnation page as well as on Bandcamp. We'd love for you to buy our LP!
Lastly, for those of you who are in the area, we'll be making our debut at the lovely Haw River Ballroom in Saxapahaw, NC on Friday June 14th opening for the band Driftwood! We couldn't be more excited to play a show with such an awesome band in such a beautiful space. Going to be a very special evening. Jeb's mother might even be there. Just saying.
Be sure to download your copy of our new LP "The Cards" today!
Use the link on the right, and Bandcamp makes the process pretty simple.
Early in the morning, Bevel Summers will be heading out for our first extended tour as a full band. It's gonna be a hell of a time, and we're all thoroughly excited to be crashing on a couch near you soon!
