M. Ward Summer Tours
I'm feeling very fortunate to be playing bass in the swingin' M. Ward combo this year. Hope you've had the chance to check out his latest More Rain -- I was fortunate enough to play on some tracks (along with other Minus 5 cohorts such as Peter Buck, Adam Selzer, Mike Coykendall). The music is brilliant and the company is wonderful. We head to St. Louis this weekend to kick off a midwest run. Once again we are extremely fortunate to have our friends NAF along with us. That's Nice As Fuck, which is Tennessee Thomas, Erika Forster, and Jenny Lewis, spreading their militantly dreamy message of punk rock hope out into the world. And the very cool Brooklyn band Big Thief, recently signed to Saddle Creek, will join on select dates.
For further news, including west coast dates, a return to New York, and a brief foray to Europe, go HERE.
