Greetings from Milkweeds headquarters! We have a few bits of news to pass along:
After a wacky ending to 2015 in which we had to cancel a few gigs to to injury and illness and had a few gigs canceled on us due to scheduling snafus, we have a couple of gigs lined up on what Travis has decided to call our “We’re Happy(ish), We’re Healthy(ish), and Our Gigs Are (So Far) Confirmed (Fingers Crossed)” world tour. The Milkweeds’ world is sorta small though so it’s only a two gig tour. Catch us while you can.
- First, we are playing what we guess we can now call our 3rd Annual End of the College Semester/May Happy Hour show at the Saltine Warrior in Syracuse, NY on Friday, May 20 from 5:00 – 8:00pm.
- Second, in 2004 we played one of our very favorite gigs at the Good Nature Brewing Tap Room in Hamilton, NY, and we are super-excited to be returning there for an 9:00 – 11:30pm show on Saturday, June 11. If you haven’t been there, it’s a great room with great beer and a great time, and we promise it will be a fun way to spend a summer Saturday night.
We have been hard at work recording our new album and have just (probably) completed recording the basic tracks for twelve new originals. With any luck, we’ll finish this thing up and get it out before the end of the year. You’ll be able to check out many, if not all, of the new songs at the above gigs.
