We close out a great weekend tonight with a 2:30am-?? late night extravaganz-set at Some Kind of Jam 9 in Schuylkill Haven, PA!! We’ve been having too much fun jamming at our shows this week, tonight’s gonna be tight! NYC and Worcester, thanks for two great nights, SKOJ: Pace Yourself!!
Our CD release party at the 9:30 Club in DC on July 3rd just got EVEN MORE EPIC!! We are proud to announce that Cabinet and B Side Shuffle are officially part of the party!! Out of PA, Cabinet is a band with roots firmly planted in the Appalachian tradition. They wear their influences like badges, honoring the canon of roots, bluegrass, country, and folk, weaving these sounds into a patchwork Americana quilt. From DC, B Side Shuffle boasts a sound built on old school District funk, new school dance grooves, snarling rock riffs, and vocal-forward hooks that have built them a explosive reputation in their young careers. Overall, this night is gonna be a full on dance party!! We welcome all walks of life to come and celebrate our country’s independence together… and to be one of the first Flockers with their hands on our new album, Psychology!!!

We’re headlining the 9:30 Club in DC on Thursday July 3rd to release our new studio album, ‘Psychology’!!

Everyone should have off Friday for Independence Day, so the Flock better be ready to kick off this three-day weekend in true American style! Openers and more info coming soon, TOO EXCITED!!!
What an amazing week! Flew by. So many highlights… Our super jam with COPE at Skipper’s in Tampa featuring nearly all of both bands… Playing to more HD cameras than people at the incredible AURA studios in Boca Raton… Finally playing to Greg’s and Dan’s grandparents… Opening with “Couldn’t We All” on the wrong instruments for April Fools in Gainesville (and we got ’em good!!)… Sit-ins by Jeff and Jim from The Heavy Pets, Chris from Displace and Sam from Grooveshark… Using actual aloe plants on our epic sunburns… Stumbling on a bird eating a lizard… Stumbling on a turtle laying 8-9 eggs in nature (it’s the circle of life!!)… Ronny high-fiving a spider monkey at the zoo… Re-meeting everyone from AURA in their respective towns… It’s been a beautiful and busy week!! With full hearts and a new tan, we begin our journey home tonight, kicking off four sweet shows that culminates at Gypsy Sally’s in DC. See you tonight at The Pour House in Charleston, SC, we hear it’s an awesome town!!
We’ve been soaking in the Floridian sun this week, some of us a little too much!! (see Greg’s underknees…) Four shows in the books and they’ve all been great!! Most impressive is the people (as always), taking such good care of us and having a great time doing it!! We’ve seen a lot of AURA friends at our shows, and even some festi-family from VA and MD!! Tonight’s show at Skipper’s with Cope in Tampa promises to be epic. We’ve heard nothing but rave reviews of the venue… outdoor stage… lots of oak trees… Cope’s hometown… and Greg’s and Dan’s families are in town!! We’ll report back, hope everyone’s smiley out there!!
Through thick and thin, it’s always the people that keeps us smiling. The Carolinas were great to us and we are so thankful to be leading our lives around so much support. Thank you Greenville, Asheville, Boone, Greensboro and Raleigh for an incredible week!! We’re taking this fuzzy feeling to FLORIDA today, keep taking care of each other and we’ll see you in Gainesville 4/1!!
Ten shows in Colorado have never gone by so fast!! From hiking to skiing to hot-tubbing to “shopping” to making new friends and playing new songs, what an incredible trip it has been! We capped off the CO run in true Flockin’ style with a packed Fox Theater in Boulder, sending us on our way back to Baltimore in supreme spirits! And while we’ll miss CO, tour’s not over by any means!! We’re so incredibly pumped for our next four shows in some of our favorite towns in the country: Wed: Evansville, IN; Thurs: Blacksburg, VA; Fri: Richmond, VA; Sat: Baltimore, MD! Then we begin our tour to Florida!! Sounds good to us…
Colorado Rocks!! In the middle of three straight off-days, we’re happy birds!! Jeremy, Dan and Greg hit the slopes in Winter Park on Tuesday, while Ben and Ronny explored Denver! Jeremy was back at it in Vail today, Dan and Greg worked on some new song ideas, and Ben and Ronny got free massages!! Colorado is a beautiful state… of mind!! Might have to hit The Motet’s CD release party in Telluride on Wednesday night at Fly Me to the Moon Saloon, where we’ll be playing on Thursday and Friday!! Sounds terrible, right?? THE PIGEONS LOVE COLORADO!!
