Just found out we will be performing in the early fall at an amazing venue- the Gallo Center for the Arts in Modesto, CA. Super psyched for this, which will be August 31, 2012 !
What a crazy week this has been. The show at Rasella's celebrating the release of Road Warrior was awesome, lots of friends and music fans there and the band sounded great. Was a tremendous night and one I will never forget. Thanks to all who came out and supported!!
The CD / album is now out on CD Baby, itunes, napster, amazon, most digital stores, and my favorite website: bandcamp! Now the work of promoting really begins. I am excited and optimistic about the future of this project!
