Hey everyone! I haven’t blogged in a minute but I’m back!
We just finished a month where we played a lot of shows that were first for us including playing our first baseball stadium in Akron, our first lacrosse stadium in Obetz, our first show at a church in Marysville, our first acoustic show at Notes in Columbus, our first show with our friends in Lnyx, and it ended with us doing our first ever house show! It was a really exciting month for us as a band and it led to us meeting a lot of amazing new fans and friends at our shows.
After having one of the busiest months for us to date this next month we have no shows scheduled at all. We are going to take the time to write some new music, get some shows together for the fall, and get ready to start playing again in July! Speaking of which, in July, we will be doing two shows with the very talented Mike Mains! We have been given a chance to open for him both here in Columbus on July 18th and in Akron two days later on July 20th. Personally, it has been on my bucket list to do a show with him so I’m extremely excited for this opportunity. God-willing, we will be doing a few new songs for the first time at this show! We are doing a little ticket raffle for these shows, but I will get to that below.
Along with these two shows we are also going to be pretty busy in August as well! On August 5th we are going to North Carolina for the first time to play at the Hickory Crawdad’s Stadium along with Building 429! This will be the furthest show we’ve had to date. Then a few days later on August 11th we will be heading to New Philadelphia to do a show with Brothers and DENS. These guys put on a great show, so if you are in the area you don’t want to miss it! Then finally on August 19th we will be playing Fashion Meets Music Festival (FMMF) the same day as national acts like DNCE, T-Pain, Cobi, and Fetty Wap. This is a festival we have been following for a few years now, and its surreal that we are now playing it!
Lastly, and for some of you probably most importantly, we are going to be raffling off 2 passes to both days of FMMF for each of our July shows! To enter your name into the raffle you just need to do two things:
- Buy a PHYSICAL presale ticket to our show with Mike Mains at Rumba Cafe on July 18th or at Musica on July 20th. To do so just message us on facebook, or on one of our personal facebook pages, letting us know you want a ticket and we will get it to you.
- Show up to one of the shows and get ready for an amazing night of great songs!
Doing these two things will put your name in the drawing! On July 21st at 8pm we will put all the names into a hat and draw a name live on Facebook, the winners will receive tickets for them and a friend to both days of FMMF!
