To the West and Back

Greetings from all of us here in Shambylvania! We just finished a tour of the west that started in Fallon, Nevada, snaked up the coast all the way to Vancouver Island in British Columbia, and ended with an intimate backyard show outside of Portland, Oregon. All in all we played seven shows in four states and two countries, and we made it back in one piece! The crowds were all enthusiastic and receptive, which was especially encouraging since this was our first time in all of these places. We returned home for a few days of rest and then finished the run up to Roxbury, New York for a community potluck and a fireworks show, followed by a trip to Manhattan for our fourth appearance at the Mercury Lounge. It is a privilege to be able to share our music and antics with people all over the world (it’s okay to say “all over the world” because we went to Canada, right?). Read on for a collection of pictures from the trip!
