Oh my goodness, we had such an incredible time touring around Texas! We made a bunch of new friends, saw a ton of excellent music and passed out lots of delicious veggies! You can check out some of the videos I filmed while working the Rotisserie Rickshaw here -> VIDEOS FROM TEXAS SHOWS
We had so much fun in fact that we are planning our next tour in September surrounding our acceptance to the PASEO festival! We are really excited to perform this show but they were not able to grant us any funding to help defray the costs associated with bringing the Rotisserie. If you are interested in helping us get up to Taos and then through Colorado to Denver and Boulder please check out our "Support the Carnival" tab above! There are lots of ways you can help! ANNND we just put a TON of new one of a kind merchandise items up on the shop. If you are interested in an in-kind donation or know of a local farm or grocery store that may be willing to donate in-kind please don't hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to everyone who made this tour a raging success! A few of the people/organizations who helped us out; Bailey K of Pearl Earl Michele Mas of Mas Music Records Richard at Onward Indian Touring The mysterious strangers at Mystery House and Aaron booking Outward Bound Mixtape Sessions at RBC
Our trip to Austin has turned into a mini-tour! Dates we have pinned down right now are;
We are super excited to announce that we will be taking the Rotisserie Rickshaw out to Austin, TX to perform at some unofficial showcases during South by Southwest! This will be the first time we have taken the Carnival to Texas to perform. We'll add links to the shows as we get them. Hope to see you there!
We did a super short trek out to LA over the weekend of the 19th to show the Rotisserie at a DIY space with some cool new friends. Dingbat Superminx and Dale did some hilarious performances that tugged at the strings of our hearts. (Like I said, just don't listen to Frank Zappa's full diskography and you'll be able to continue liking him.) I learned that folk punk is a thing (Acustic guitar paired with screaming about capatilisim apparently) and met someone with a freshly growing mullet. The Hopper is a sweet little spot tucked away in South downtonw Los Angeles and it made for a sweet little hideaway. We had a barbeque provided by Conrad, our intrepid host. All in all it was a nice evening and we had a great time. Added bonus of 28 hours of driving for us which I actually really enjoy because it gives us time to brainstorm and really talk freely about the carnival, plans and ideas. Some of our best ideas have come from road trips so I say more of em!Dingbat Superminx Dale
