Over on MetaFilter Music, I've fallen for a band doing sort of old timey pirate shanty stuff called The Scarring Party. They recently threw a Kickstarter fund drive for their upcoming west coast tour, and I went so far as to donate at the level where they had to write a song about me.
Here are their upcoming tour dates:
- April 22 at Empty Sea Studios (All Ages) with Erin Jorgensen in Seattle, WA
- April 23 at Alberta Street Pub in Portland, OR
- April 24 at Sam Bond’s Garage in Eugene, OR
- April 25 at Rainshadow (All Ages) with Deadly Gallows and Stabracadabra in Reno, NV
- April 26 at Disco Volante in Oakland, CA
- April 27 at Viracocha with Eliza Rickman in San Francisco, CA
- April 28 at The Crepe Place in Santa Cruz, CA
- April 29 at a yet to be determined space or residence in the Greater Los Angeles Area
- April 30 at Park Gallery with Martian Horses and Birds Ate My Face in San Diego, CA
Even though I only go out about once every six months to a concert/event, I actually have tickets to Donald Glover doing comedy the same night as their Portland date so I'll sadly be missing them in town (though I might try to catch them before/after), but if you get the chance do check them out.
Here's my song, Head Full of Birds they wrote for me:
