Kyle Sullivan and I are looking forward to hitting the road next week for a string of special duo shows. We’ll kick it off in our hometown of Toronto at our old haunt, Castro’s Lounge Tuesday October 9th (John Lennon’s birthday). The dates will bring us to the East Coast of Canada, as far as Mount Stewart, PEI at Trailside Cafe, one of our favourite Canadian venues. These shows will be special for us, after playing together for almost 15 years, we’ve made a lot of music together and we’ll be dusting some older tunes off. There will also be a different musical soundscape than what you’d be used to hearing from us, since it’ll just be myself on vocals/electric guitar and Kyle on drums/vocals. Hope to see you at one of the shows. Check out the dates at the bottom of this email.
After our duo tour, we’ll meet up with the rest of The Situation and play a couple of festivals and shows in The Netherlands and Germany. We’re excited to be playing Music Star in Norderstedt again, some new rooms, some fests such as Take Root in Groningen with Kurt Vile, Father John Misty, Trampled By Turtles (who we’ll also open for in Amsterdam) and Neko Case (Kyle and I just saw her great concert here in Toronto), among others.
We have some other shows happening before the end of a fantastic year for us. Lots of exciting news coming up in 2019!
